Magpie, the folk band

Staying with the musical theme this week, I decided to look up bands with corvid-related names and came across a lovely folk duo, Magpie with Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino. I am a big fan of folk and indie music. So let me share Magpie with you.

The Magpie by Magpie

From their own website, a biography of their band and themselves,

Magpie – Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino a brief biography

Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner began to play music together in Kent, Ohio in September of 1973. They chose the name Magpie for their band, a name which grew in personal significance for them as years went by. Terry was a student in her senior year at Kent State University in the fall of ’73, and when she graduated the following spring, she and Greg packed Greg’s VW bus and moved to the Washington, DC area. In the years since then, they have traveled and toured extensively, performed in concerts, at folk clubs and festivals around the world, and recorded many times.

Some tunes to crow about…

Well, being a corvid lover and all…I decided I would gather up some music about the intelligent birds. Some of the songs are about the bird, some are named after the bird, some liken love or life after the birds. All of them are worth listening to—so sit back, push play and enjoy. The music player is in the upper left corner.

If you have a song about crows, ravens, jays or any corvid you would like to share, please feel free to contact us below.
A detailed play list is coming soon—so you can get these songs too.
