A favorite of Asheville classical and bluegrass audiences, Mike Marshall is one of the most accomplished and versatile acoustic musicians performing today -- well known for his collaborations with the leading artists such as Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck, and Chris Thile. In a special tour aptly named “Crossroads,” this master of the mandolin, guitar, and violin joins forces with the two-time Grammy winning Turtle Island Quartet for a series of unforgettable concerts. Together they undertake a musical journey across the American landscape. Various stops along the way include American fiddle and folk music, modern and vintage jazz, Latin American and South Indian music, the myriad folk and classical traditions of Europe, and beyond. Whether exploring the music of the many immigrant cultures of the 19th century or creating original work that melds these influences into new sounds, this great combination is not to be missed.
