Mike Marshall

Mike Marshall is one of the most innovative players of new instrumental music. Initially rooted in bluegrass, Marshall has consistently explored all the possibilities of his stringed instruments. A native of Pennsylvania, Marshall grew up in Lakeland, Florida. At the age of 18, he won the Florida state fiddle and mandolin championships. After performing with the Sunshine Bluegrass Boys, Marshall relocated to the West Coast. Soon after working with David Grisman on the film score of The King of the Gypsies in 1985, Marshall was invited to join the influential David Grisman Quintet. During the five years (1985-1990) that he was a member of the quintet, Marshall toured with Stéphane Grappelli, Mark O'Connor, Tony Rice, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, and fellow Grisman bandmember Darol Anger.

Following his departure from Grisman's group, Marshall continued to work with fiddler Anger as a duo and, along with pianist Barbara Higbie and bassist Michael Manring, in a folk/chamber music group, Montreux. Marshall and Anger also collaborated, along with bassist Todd Phillips, banjo player Tony Trischka, and guitarist David Grier, in a bluegrass/jazz/classical/folk group, Psychograss. Marshall co-founded the Modern Mandolin Quartet and plays Brazilian music with Choro Famoso. Marshall has also periodically collaborated with Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas, Mark O'Connor, and Sam Bush in a bluegrass superband, Strength in Numbers. Marshall has produced numerous albums including recordings by Laurie Lewis, Alison Brown, Jennifer Berezan, and Tony Furtado.

Marshall's first solo album, 1989's Gator Strut, spotlighted his jazz-meets-bluegrass approach, and the follow-up, 1997's Brasil: Duets (reissued as Brazil: Duets in 2005), focused on the Brazilian influences on his music, featuring duets with Edgar Meyer, Michael Manring, and Béla Fleck. In 2003, Marshall teamed up with mandolinist Chris Thile to release Into the Cauldron, a fine record of duets between the two exploring everything from classical and traditional music to contemporary numbers written in collaboration. The year 2003 also saw the release of Serenata (by the duo of Marshall and pianist Jovino Santos Neto) on the newly formed Adventure Music label, dedicated to the exploration of Brazilian and diverse other musics. Subsequent releases on Adventure Music have included 2004's Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso, 2006's New Words (Novas Palavras) by Marshall and Hamilton De Holanda, 2007's Mike Marshall and Darol Anger with Vasen, 2009's Mike Marshall's Big Trio, and 2010's Caterina Lichtenberg and Mike Marshall, the latter pairing Marshall with current wife Lichtenberg, also a mandolinist. ~ Craig Harris

Mike taught me to play guitar... and taught my older brother to play darn near every bluegrass instrument that has strings. What a talented and humble friend. 40 years later, and I can still sit and listen to him play for hours. What a gifted musician, and the world is a better place with his gifts given to us. Thanks Mike!

Just saw him with Chris Thile at Wintergrass 2014 in Seattle.
Without question the best two Mandolinists of all time.

If you like bluegrass and classical music too, check out the Big Trio. Incredibly rich music. He is an astounding player and composer.

How many different styles is this guy fluent in? And can he play almost any string instrument? Bluegrass, jazz, Brazilian, atmospheric ambient, and Dawg music! Acoustic guitar, the entire mandolin family, and fiddle!He's brilliant. Not anonymous, but under-apprec i a t e d , as evidenced by the severe lack of comments here! Superior in all contexts, live and recorded. I'm thankful to have had his music on my play-list for a very long time. PEACE
