Event Is Over
Come have a great time in Downtown Bentonville at the Meteor with
MARLEY'S GHOST during NICA, the National Interscholastic Bicycling Associations Conference. The after parties are open to the public and all ages so come have some fun with all your friends and neighbors.
Marley’s Ghost is a national treasure, the capable inheritor of the archetypal Americana blueprint drawn up by The Band.
As the LA Weekly put it, “This West Coast band deftly dashes across decades of American music to create a sound that’s steeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism.”
Known for its trademark multi-part harmonies and multi-instrumental skills, Marley’s Ghost can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, soulful gospel to stone country, which is what they've been doing—to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musicians—throughout their three decades as a working unit.
The ever-eclectic band will be featuring some gone-world gospel gems from its forthcoming release, Travelin' Shoes, helmed by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell, known for his artful work with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, and countless others.
“Thirty years into its career, Marley’s Ghost is like a well-worn leather jacket. You can admire their tenure intellectually, but up-close, with your ears, you can’t help but be moved by the effortless music their tenure has produced. Remarkable, distinctive voices, giddily eccentric eclecticism, a heady subversive treat.” – No Depression
“The setlist itself is an inspiration. The revelation, though, is just how strong and unswerving Marley’s Ghost stays centered on doing American music proud. It’s a love affair set to sound, and every time it comes around we’re all the better for it. Believe.” – The Morton Report
“The vocals will blow you away with their purity. The group sings with the heartfelt conviction that only those who embody music’s spirituality can convey.” – Relix
“Marley’s Ghost is a fantastic band who has figured themselves out.” – Pop Matters
