Marshall, Bolt & Harr CD Release

Jackalope recording Artists
Original Americana, Blues, Boogie & Celtic music
Saturday, Nov. 14th 7pm No Cover
Coffee Catz, Highway 12 Gravenstien Station, Sebastopol

CD is in final design stages and....We are working on scheduling a CD release party at the Last record Store on Mendocino Ave in Santa Rosa. Still working on a date hopefully in December just in time for the Holiday. Please check the website for updates.

Members of this trio have shared the stage with Dan Hicks, John Lee Hooker, Commander Cody, Norman Greenbaum and others.

In every rehearsal and performance the ego's are left at the door and replaced with the joy and love of creating "music in its natural state." MB&H lives by the tongue and cheek credo..."We are living proof you should never take yourself too seriously." For MB&H performances are always a tremendous joy but the experience of co-creating original music is what drives this very original and talented songwriting team. Their collective professional experience spans some 40 years.
MARSHALL, BOLT & HARR are now recording their first CD together as a trio with Jackalope Records in Santa Rosa California with the considerable production talents of Doug Jayne.

Original Americana, contemporary folk, blues, boogie, Celtic...and wee bit of tomfoolery.

North Bay music veteran PHIL MARSHALL is our "Baron of the Base Guitar." None finer or more versatile. Phil also contributes his considerable arranging savvy and talents to the trio compositions. PHIL MARSHALL uses a traditional stand up base, an electric acoustic masterpiece by Klein/Taylor and a fretless base on the selections of the Woodbine project. PHIL MARSHALL cut his professional teeth back in the 60's and 70's with Norman Greenbaum and Crossfire. He has recorded in every major studio in L.A. Phil's versitility as a player keeps him in demand to play with others in the North Bay like Blue Moon, Smile'n Iguana's, jazz and Dixieland quartets.

ROGER BOLT: Classically trained singer and songwriter, Acoustic steel string and electric guitar. Roger's international and world travel has influenced his original composition to a broad musical pallet of Latin, Celtic, Early American Folk, Rock, Blues, Boogie, Jazz and styles we don't have a name for. ROGER BOLT began his musical journey in the South East with his first band the Inmates, playing for the men and women leaving Ft. Benning Georgia for the war in Viet Nam during the late Sixties. After moving to California in 1967 He connected with other kindred spirits and formed other musical projects like Woodbine, the rock band BOLT, Los Gringos, Noble Bolt and others. Roger has also spent many years in broadcasting with NPR affiliate KRCB FM, KPLS Country music and KMLS Cable 1 rock radio.

The haunting Celtic song "Hooligan's Dream" from the Woodbine CD; Moonlight Memory is currently appearing in the movie "Hilo de Cristal" or "Thread of Glass", from Grial Producciones, Spain. All songs are available on this website, playable and down loadable.

STEVE HARR: Singer songwriter, Guitarist, arranger and citizen of the cosmos. STEVE HARR has performed and recorded for many years in the country and AOR markets. STEVE HARR has shared the stage with Lightning Hopkins, Dan Hicks, Commander Cody and many others. His country compositions have been in the top 10 of the international Billboard. STEVE HARR brings a natural ease to his work often spiked with earthy humour of the common man and the human condition.

Together these three talented singers and songwriters translate their joy of the creative process to every audience they perform before. From moody introspective ballads to toe tapping boogie and blues MARSHALL, BOLT & HARR connects to listeners and fans wherever they play.
