  • Performer

I come from the singer/songwriter tradition that grew out of the Big Folk Scare of the '60s. I was a full time performing musician for 20 years or so, in bands and as a solo. Now, I perform occasionally and record myself and others in my home Pro Tools studio. I recently established a YouTube channel, The Dmarchant Channel on which I've been putting performances that cover a long span of years. I play fingerstyle guitar, Scruggs style banjo, tenor banjo, mandolin, ukelele, dobro, bass and any other instrument I can figure out.
