Rory Ellis & Christian Marsh
RORY ELLIS & CHRISTIAN MARSH
Stories by the tonne, opinions if you ask, and Americana music with a delicate wrench, this highly engaging duo will make you laugh, shed the odd tear, and potentially break into a raging two-step!
Featuring Rory Ellis on Vocals, Crowd Control and all things Acoustic, joined onstage by long time sideman Christian Marsh, who in his own right is a world renown master of the Chromatic and Diatonic Harmonica. Together they perform stripped down versions of Rory's last 10 albums. Just as they were written, in a rocking chair on the back porch.
Thirty odd years in the making, Rory has performed extensively at major venues and festivals here and abroad alongside greats such as Robert Cray, Richie Havens, Charlie Mussellwhite, Eric Bibb, even Pokey La Farge. Some festivals include, Isle Of Wight Festival UK, Maryport Blues Festival UK, Shetland Folk Festival UK, Castel St Pietro Blues Festival IT, Thredbo Blues Festival AU, Port Fairy Folk Festival AU, the list goes on.
Most recently Rory and Christian performed at the Blue Mountains Music Festival 2022.
“An underground hero of Americana”, it’s been whispered. A Master Songsmith many have said.
Yet, lauded by the media worldwide on every single album to date.
