Enjoy LIVE world-class jazz throughout the fest from award-winning guitarist Matt Marshak. Matt combines his classic and fluid style with jazz, blues, rock, pop and even down-home boogie. Marshak’s seventh major album release followed 2011′s highly received Urban Folktales, which captured a sophisticated late-night vibe and boasted a No. 1 song on the 2011 indie jazz chart, “Silent Knowing.” IMarshak is popular on the tour circuit (Seabreeze, Rehoboth, Hartford Jazz, Low Country, etc.) and finding new audiences with his new, fresh music in a time when it seems the entire music industry is shrinking. Keeping his music evolving in new directions is important to the guitarist. Check out Matt’s music here.
