Even the members of the band have trouble describing their music, but as their recent CD Ghost Town exemplifies, whatever they do, it always comes out sounding uniquely like Marley's Ghost.A hotbed of multi-instrumental talent that has been playing together for over two decades, the group features Jon Wilcox's mandolin, guitar and bouzouki, Mike Phelan's guitars, dobro, fiddle, bass and lap steel, Dan Wheetman's guitar, fiddle, bass, banjo, and blues harp, Jerry Fletcher's percussion and keyboards, and Ed Littlefield's guitars, dobro, pedal steel guitar, and Highland bagpipes. They're all great singers, too!Visit Marley's Ghost's website Listen to a track from Marley's Ghost:
Marley's Ghost - Acoustic Music Concert Date: 10/27 Thursday 8pm Doors: 7pm On the verge of twenty-five years of making music together, recording nine albums, and performing thousands of shows across the country, Marley's Ghost is at once a deeply seasoned band of kindred spirits and one of the best-kept secrets of the acoustic music world.The absence of a handy label or glib marketing slogan - like a soft drink without a jingle - may have helped obscure the work of this richly rewarding musical venture, but the group keeps working, keeps getting invited back, keeps winning fans and, perhaps most importantly, keeps getting better at what they do, whatever you call it. Together they are a unique amalgam of their respective backgrounds, personal proclivities, and musical abilities - a blend honed to a seamless collaboration over the many miles they traveled together down the road.
