Edgar Meyer, bass & Mike Marshall, mandolin

Event Date: 
Sunday, September 22, 2013 - 5:00pm

Legendary double bassist and composer Edgar Meyer and virtuoso mandolin player Mike Marshall are among the top instrumentalists of their kind. They’ve played with greats like Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, and Béla Fleck and have been collaborating together for over 20 years.

Over these past two decades, they have developed a fully realized concept of the mandolin/bass duo.

Edgar and Mike present a repertoire that spans the globe--from Bach duets to Brazilian choros to funky original pieces and their own twisted fiddle tunes. Watch Video

In demand as both a performer and a composer, double bassist Edgar Meyer has formed a role in the music world unlike any other. Hailed by The New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument,” Mr. Meyer’s unparalleled technique and musicianship, in combination with his gift for composition, have brought him to the forefront, where he is appreciated by a vast, varied audience.
