CROSSROADS

Presented in partnership with the Cactus Cafe and the Austin Classical Guitar Society

Sit back and take a musical journey through the American landscape with two-time Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet and special guest Mike Marshall, acoustic musician extraordinaire. Stops along the way include American fiddle and folk music, modern and vintage jazz, Latin American and South Indian music, the myriad folk and classical traditions of Europe, and more.

Since its inception in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. The group has virtually redefined the state of the art by fusing the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles.

Marshall is one of the most accomplished and versatile acoustic musicians performing today. Master of the mandolin and guitar, he is well known for his collaborations with artists such as Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck, and Chris Thile.

“It must have been like this when Beethoven was taking Vienna by storm – the exhilaration of seeing the future of classical music unfold before your eyes and ears.”
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

“Marshall is a one-man talent pool.”
