Last time encore spoke with Marcus King, the young bluesman and singer-songwriter was about to open for JJ Grey and Mofro at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater. At 20 years old at the time, King was (and still is) getting a lot of attention for his writing and prowess. “I actually don’t consider myself to be a strong writer because I have so many heroes that are phenomenal writers,” he said in our 2016 interview.
He returned to GLA Thursday night as the main event with local player Travis Shallow opening the show. Check out these photos from Tom Dorgan.
