Marley's Ghost - Sneak Peek Show at Boulevard Music


Popular West Coast band Marley’s Ghost will play Boulevard Music in Culver City on Saturday, April 11 in celebration of the release of its forthcoming album, The Woodstock Sessions.

The recording project was helmed by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell. Known for his artful work with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm, among many others, Campbell guides the Ghost’s dig into its garden of deep roots to uncover a host of hidden gems.

Featuring its trademark multi-part harmonies and multi-instrumental skills, the band’s 11th album is a resonant road trip through America’s past set firmly in the present.

Critics have lauded Marley’s Ghost as “the band that does it all,” as its repertoire ranges from roots to reggae, English folk to gospel, rhythm and blues to Scottish bagpipe tunes.

As the L.A. Weekly aptly put it, “This West Coast group deftly dashes across decades ofAmerican music to create a sound that’s steeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism.”

Some of the most respected names in the business have thrown their hats in the ring with the band. Their 2013 release, Jubilee, was produced by the late and legendary Cowboy Jack Clement, and featured guest performers John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Old Crow Medicine Show, Marty Stuart, and Larry Campbell.

It was this work with Marley’s Ghost that compelled Campbell, a master musician of all things stringed, three-time Grammy winning producer, and Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, to sign on to produce The Woodstock Sessions. The record will be available for purchase and signing at the Boulevard Music show ahead of its official release later this spring.

Boulevard Music is located at 4316 Sepulveda Blvd. in Culver City. Admission is $17.50 and music starts at 8 pm for the Saturday, April 11 show. Tickets may be purchased in person at Boulevard Music or by phone at 310-398-2583. Find out more about the band at
