The Carson Valley Arts Council will present Marley’s Ghost in concert on April 5, 2019 at the CVIC Hall in Minden. As the L.A. Weekly aptly put it, “This West Coast group deftly dashes across decades of American music to create a sound that’s steeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism.” Get your tickets early for this awesome band.
Marley’s Ghost has
earned cult-band status over years of spirited musicianship, multi-part
harmonies and irreverent humor.
…goes down smooth, rich and delectable.”
At the core of Marley’s Ghost and this project is timeless music that’s superbly executed.”
The band celebrates its 30th anniversary with the release of The Woodstock Sessions, helmed by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell. Known for his artful work with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, and countless others, Campbell guides the Ghost’s dig into its garden of deep roots to uncover a host of hidden gems. Featuring its trademark multi-part harmonies and multi-instrumental skills, the band’s 11th album is a resonant road trip through America’s past set firmly in the present.
An eclectic aggregation composed of singer/multi-instrumentalists Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Ed Littlefield Jr., Jerry Fletcher, and Bob Nichols – the band can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, gospel to stone country, which is what they’ve been doing – to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musicians – throughout their first quarter century as a working unit. Their trademark multi-part harmonies never cease to captivate, whether on record or in live performance.
