Memorial Day Weekend: Madison WI

Marques Morel

Friday, May 27 | Folk | Ho-Chunk Grand Stage | 2:00pm

Marques Morel is a Midwestern American songwriter/folksinger, guitar-strummer/harmonica wailer, Street-performer/wandering troubadour, itinerant woodcutter/migrant worker, and a friend to all. He has performed everywhere from big city street corners around the world, to county fairs and festivals, to dingy bars, listening rooms and theaters. Known for his intense and infectious energy on stage and his gritty and honest songwriting and delivery, Marques Morel will be found performing either as a one man show, or with his band, The Midnight Wind. After nearly a decade since his last solo release, Marques released his new LP, Trail of the Ghost, in February of 2021. Trail of the Ghost is an intimate portrait of a haunted man as he wanders the old and the new American west. Rich with iconic figureheads such as Woody Guthrie, Jack Kerouac, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo, Morel’s new record is a journey in itself that is well worth the walk.
