Marques Morel is an American songwriter/folksinger, guitar-strummer/harmonica wailer, Street-performer/wandering troubadour, itinerant woodcutter/migrant worker, and a friend to all. Originally from the Illinois corn country, Marques has performed everywhere from big city street corners around the world, to county fairs and festivals, to taverns and theaters, sharing the stage with artists such as Charlie Parr, Arlo McKinley, The Hooten Hallers, and Dead Horses, to name a few. Known for his intense and infectious energy on stage and his gritty and honest songwriting and delivery, Marques Morel has been described by his fans as “raw and rustic,” “guts on the floor,” and “wild and happy and dark and sad.” He will be found performing either as a one man show accompanied only by his old guitar, harmonica on the rack, and makeshift kick drum, or with his dynamically spirited band, The Midnight Wind.
