Magpie Sings for the Earth!
Throughout their career spanning over four and a half decades, internationally renowned singers Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner have devoted a tremendous amount of their time, energy, and music to environmental causes, particularly in the area of preservation and restoration of our country's estuaries, bays, and rivers, and their performances are in great demand by environmental action and education organizations. Their musical work has supported the work of such notable groups as Restore America's Estuaries, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, National Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, the National Wildlife Refuge System, the National Park Service, the Smithsonian Institution, and Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, where they have often shared the stage with their friend and fellow environmentalist, Pete Seeger. Earth Day 1998 found them performing at Harpers Ferry National Park where their music was a fitting backdrop to an appearance by then President Bill Clinton and Vice-president Al Gore. Their well-known anthem, "We Belong to the Earth" was a perfect finale to speeches by the two leaders. Their anthemic "O'er the Estuary" was the finale at the first annual National Conference on Estuary Habitat Restoration sponsored by Restore America's Estuaries.
Their work in environmental education has resulted in their invitation to be featured presenters for statewide environmental education associations in Maryland (MAEOE), Pennsylvania (PAEE), New Jersey (ANJEE), and Ohio (EECO). Terry and Greg's commitment to children has taken them to performances in concerts and residencies in schools, as well as training workshops all across the country.
Their school concert presentations for many years have focused on environmental concerns, and their recordings Living Planet, Circle of Life, and Seed on the Prairie are on the theme of the Earth. They have also conducted songwriting residencies sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Maryland schools, educating and empowering the students to express the many ways to treasure, protect, and restore one of America's most important waterways.
In April, 2000 Terry and Greg created an original musical entitled "Tales of the Blue Crab" written and developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution's Environmental Research Center (SERC) and produced and presented by Smithsonian's Discovery Theatre. The show features a collection of songs, including new Magpie compositions, that tell the story of the life cycle of the blue crab with great fun, engaging the audience in participation as they learn amazing scientific facts about the Chesapeake Bay's most famous resident. In the fall of 2001, they were chosen as Smithsonian Selected Scholars to present their aquatic environmental show "Ichthyomusicology" for students in southeastern Connecticut.
Terry and Greg have contributed tracks to several compilation Cds to benefit environmental causes. 2 were benefits for Chesapeake Bay restoration, and 4 were produced by Musicians United to Sustain the Environment. The most recent, "Songs for the Earth: a Tribute to Rachel Carson", was compiled by Greg & Terry themselves, and is a benefit for MUSE and the Rachel Carson Council.
In keeping with a career-long commitment to education and using music to help effect positive social change, Greg and Terry have maintained a high standard, selecting and composing songs that are moving, thought provoking and educational as well as being great fun and great entertainment. Their excellent musicianship, powerful voices, and superb stage presence, polished well over a span of forty-six years of professional work together, has won them acclaim in performances throughout the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Italy, and Mexico. They are 3-time winners of the Washington Area Music Association's "Wammie" award in folk music. In 2004 they were the recipients of the World Folk Music Association's prestigious John Denver Award for excellence in environmental music and activism.

A former technology leader and symphony violinist, Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Dixon now improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looping system he developed to create an all-live one-man symphony, guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation.
