Edgar Meyer & Mike Marshall
Saturday April 1 at 6:00 pm
Presented by Savannah Music Festival
Following up their 2012 SMF performance at the Charles H. Morris Center, mandolinist Mike Marshall and bassist Edgar Meyer come together for this highly-anticipated return. Throughout a lifetime of performing and composing, Edgar Meyer has turned the double bass into a modern virtuoso instrument that is equally at home in classical music and the American vernacular. He has developed a voice like no other on his instrument. Mandolin master and SMF Associate Artistic Director Mike Marshall has been blending genres in acoustic music for 40 years, performing and recording with players in bluegrass, classical, jazz and Brazilian music–so it’s no surprise that Marshall and Meyer have developed a fully realized concept of the mandolin/bass duo, presenting a repertoire that spans the globe.
