"Marcus Wilkerson, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, mixes American roots music with the rhythms of Traditional African and Afro-Latin music and song. A talented vocalist, hand drummer and guitarist, Marcus weaves in and out of the genres that cross all cultures with his mixture of acoustic soul and what he calls bio-rhythmic expression, using percussion and his body as his instrument.
Deeply steeped in the classic song writing traditions of early Civil Rights Movement and The Peace Movement of the 60's and 70's, Marcus Wilkerson is a student, teacher and performer of all music that marks the development of human consciousness."
This will take place in the Montgomery County Public Library in the Community Room and refreshments will be provided.
