Evan J. Marshall (Musician/Ensemble, Fiddle)is an internationally renowned fiddler and mandolin virtuoso, and is widely regarded as the world’s premier solo performer on mandolin in Duo-Style. Country guitar legend Chet Atkins called Evan “A true virtuoso, one of the few great musicians of our time.” In addition to solo performances, Evan has been a featured guest artist in Pops concerts with a number of Symphony Orchestras, including Houston, Phoenix, Long Beach, Grand Rapids, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Jacksonville, and Pensacola. Two of his solo recordings have been released by Rounder Records: Evan Marshall Is the Lone Arranger, which the Washington Post labeled “truly dazzling”, the Raleigh-Durham Independent called “superhuman”, and the Fresno Bee called “mind-boggling”; and Mandolin Magic, which the St. Paul Pioneer Press applauded for a “stunning mastery of interpretation”. Evan also has recorded five solo CDs for his own label, Mandolin Conservatory. In 1995 Evan made his first appearance on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Between 1993 and 2005 Evan was a featured soloist at Disneyland, performing his signature “William Tell Overture: Finale” for about two million visitors to the famous Golden Horseshoe Theater during the course of 10,000 shows.
