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.
With years of extensive touring in Canada and the UK, his day job has been left behind and this proud father of two has an album release, cross Canada tour, summer festivals as well as extensive European and U.K. tours to keep him busy in 2019.
"Max Marshall's clever picking, and playful melodies lifted hearts and got toes tapping. A pleasure to listen to and a joy to spend the afternoon with."
founder and organizer of Pelee Island unplugged folk festival
"You can hire someone to maintain your crowd or you can hire someone to entertain them. With Max, you get both."
owner/operator of The Dominion House Tavern (Windsor) and organizer of Fork and Cork Music Festival
