Cat Sank Trio

The Cat Sank Trio is a Fargo/Moorhead-based eclectic/ acoustic folk band that plays ”deep” album cuts, originals, forgotten hits, songs by off-the-beaten-path artists, and three-part vocal/two guitar arrangements of alternative tunes that most bands/groups don’t do—so they won’t be pigeon-holed into a specific genre other than three-part vocal/two guitars. Crystal Jensen sings, plays the penny whistle and Melodica; Steve Marquart sings and plays Martin guitars exclusively; Mike “Fanks” Semanko sings one verse and plays percussion; Terry Ruud sings, sucks at the harmonica, plays a Taylor guitar in rooms with bottom-heavy acoustics, and a Martin guitar in rooms with bright acoustics.
They’re a happy little trio of four, playing songs that one doesn’t hear every day but including some not heard in years, and they have played engagements ranging from Moose Fest in Karlstad, MN, to opening for the Mammals at Ralph’s Corner Bar, from political conventions to Halloween at Fargo’s Spirit Room.
