Maggie in the Meantime is made up of four musicians who have been playing since they were children: Magdalena Modzelewska, Darrel Fickbohm, Blaine Fickbohm, and Jeff Paul.

​Magdalena Modzelewska (Maggie) is one of the four principal violins in the South Dakota Symphony and has performed in Europe and America as a soloist.  Her own musical project, Flower and Flame, has performed in Europe and the state of South Dakota.

Blaine Fickbohm, has mastered the wooden drum (cajon), and joins the group from his hometown of Moville, Iowa.

​Jeff Paul, from Los Angeles, is the jack-of-all-trades in the group with stage credits in every genre. He is principle oboist in the South Dakota Symphony, but for this show he plays pennywhistle, oboe, keyboards, guitar, and English horn.

Darrel Fickbohm, brother to Blaine, is a guitar player, a singer/songwriter and professional actor with performance credits in both Europe and America. He describes the group as a distilled blend of storytelling, Celtic, folk, and ballad. In the course of the evening one hears some familiar tunes and some new.

"Many countries, like Scotland and Ireland, still listen to the same music from generation to generation—it unites them. We, in America, have gotten away from that kind of popular appeal, but recent trends in folk revival have been reclaiming lost ground.  We’ve found that nearly everyone has a good time at our shows," says Darrel.
