Evan Marshall

Solo Albums:
Mandolin Unlimited - 1987 - Rounder
The debut of a remarkable innovator, whose "duo" playing style ì can make a single mandolin sound like a small choir, with bass ì lines, chordal accompaniment, and tremolo melodies. Mark ì O'Connor produced and plays fiddle; Sam Bush also contributes.

Mandolin Magic - 1990 - Rounder
What sounds like a small choir of mandolins playing bass lines, chordal accompaniment, and tremolo melodies is in fact nothing except Evan Marshall all by himself. Which would not mean much in this Age of the Overdub except for one astounding fact: Marshall plays all this music live, at once, on one mandolin, with no overdubs at all. That's four tiny pairs of strings and one flatpick, plus a stray finger or ten. These feats of the impossible are something like what Chet Atkins does on guitar -- Atkins, in fact, praises Marshall as "one of the few great musicians of our time." Produced and engineered by David Grisman.
