Don’t miss an in-studio performance with the Turtle Island Quartet and Mike Marshall Wednesday at 12:15


We’re pretty thrilled to welcome the Turtle Island Quartet to the KSUT studios Wednesday (5/9) at 12:15 PM. They  perform at the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College, Wednesday evening. The “Turtles” will be joined by Mike Marshall, one of the world’s most accomplished and versatile string instrumentalists.

Its name derived from Native American Folklore, the Turtle Island Quartet has been cited as a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings, and called the quintessential American string quartet of the 21st century. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy for Best Classical Crossover, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles. The repertoire consists of hundreds of ingenious arrangements and originals.

Mike Marshall has been a part of the new acoustic music scene since the early 1980s. He has performed and recorded with many musicians in a variety of styles, including bluegrass, classical, jazz and Brazilian music. In addition to several instruments within the mandolin family, Marshall also plays the guitar and violin.
