Join us on Facebook for this streaming concert event featuring Knoxville's own Guy Marshall.
East Tennessee customarily has been a hotbed for homegrown country and Americana music. Springing from this fertile ground has been Knoxville's own Guy Marshall, a refreshing departure from the usual fare with their easy to sing along lyrics, infectious country meets alternative melodies and their eccentrically charming frontman, Adam McNulty. The name Guy Marshall is an ode to Adam's grandfather, Guy Marshall Shirley, a steadying and influential figure in his life and about whom several songs have been penned. McNulty grew up the son of a mom who started him out on Alison Krauss and Union Station. His first concert was one by the Indigo Girls; when he started playing music as a teenager, his guitar teacher (GM's lead guitarist, Eric Griffin) turned him onto bands like Radiohead. Later on, he immersed himself in Bob Dylan. Other influences include David Gray, Jeff Buckley and the British alt-rock band, Travis. Guy Marshall has an impressive resume including regional touring over the past couple of years and a number of festival appearances including the Foothills Fall Festival, Rhythm and Blooms, Whispering Beard, White Squirrel, Meadow Lark and Jammin' at Hippie Jacks where their set was filmed for an appearance on PBS. Most recently Guy Marshall opened for Rufus Wainwright at the historic Bijou Theatre and their music was featured on an episode of Johnny Knoxville's Sirius XM radio show. As the citizens of these uncertain times go on with their daily lives, Guy Marshall forges ahead spreading the gospel of an Appalachian Cowboy throughout a weary world in need of a good story and some comforting sounds.
