From Early era blues and ragtime to his own songs, Max is a captivating master performer, a guitar acrobat and an engaging stage personality. Born in Windsor, Ontario, and currently based in Essex County, Max Marshall has performed publicly since childhood and in live music venues since the age of 14, and has grown into a passion for stories from the vast palate of the Canadian folk identity. Marshall has chosen finger style acoustic guitar as his medium with a preference for folk/country blues/ragtime as his true musical purpose. In a performance that extends from soft introspection to frenzied, bluesy, interpretations, Max Marshall gives audiences a heartfelt, personal performance, featuring a guitar style that is largely underexposed.

Joining Max on this tour around the province… With thunderous vocal prowess and a unique authenticity in his stories, Mike McKenna Jr is a soulful singer-songwriter from Cape Breton Island who has captivated listeners in the Montreal music scene, in his native Maritimes and around the North American folk community. His vivid tales of modern heartbreak and tragic sea voyages are a fresh throwback to the nautical-themed traditional songs of his home province of Nova Scotia, and a revival of a rare style brought into the mainstream by veteran Canadian songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot and the late Stan Rogers.
