The Marcus King Band On World Cafe

Dec 6, 2016

The Marcus King Band joins World Cafe's Dan Reed for an interview and performance recorded onstage at World Cafe Live. King, a 20-year-old guitarist who hails from South Carolina, released his self-titled second album earlier this year on ATO Records. The record was produced by another guitarist from the Carolinas, Warren Haynes, whom King says he's always admired as a songwriter.

It's easy to think of King as a young musician who's keeping the blues alive, but he says he doesn't want to confine his music to any one genre. Listen and decide for yourself in this session — and don't miss the video, below, of King and his band performing "Virginia."
