Interview with Maggie Spike, Berks Singer/Songwriter Duo, Part 1

With this segment about Maggie Spike, we continue exploring the richness of singer/songerwriter talent in and around Berks County.

Reading, PA-area duo Peggy and Eric Gernerd form Maggie Spike, the two-year-old project launched after their earlier group, Fieldstone, split up. They regularly play Berks County shows and are in production stages for a CD follow-up to Passenger Station, an eclectic modern mix recalling Joni Mitchell, It’s a Beautiful Day, and other progressive folk acts from the 70s.

In this segment, Peggy and Eric talk about the origins of the band, the Celtic strain running through their music, and their hopes for Maggie Spike as they continue touring and rolling out a new CD.

Our next segment with Maggie Spike will feature performance footage plus more from Eric and Peggy about their upcoming projects. Meanwhile, join them as they play RiverFest on Saturday, September 23, at 3 p.m.
