BONYCH Festival Artist: Steve Marquette

Steve Marquette is joining the BONYCH festival as part of the Cinghiale duo. Marquette is a guitarist, improviser and organizer based out of Chicago, IL. Over the past decade he has become an integral part of the city's storied and vibrant improvised music community, in ensembles of his own (The Few with Macie Stewart and Charlie Kirchen, Kobra Quartet, Instigation Orchestra) and as a member of Ken Vandermark's Marker among other projects. In addition to his work as a musician, he is also a founder and lead organizer of the Instigation Festival - which brings together music, movement and video artists from Chicago and New Orleans for a week of interdisciplinary collaboration in each city. 

Using both acoustic and electric guitars, Marquette's solo music explores the intersections between free improvisation, folk traditions and the guitar as "sound box". 

The BONYCH festival is on August 31st. Tickets are only $20 and include both the music and all day BBQ - truly a new cultural event not to be missed!
