Across the River
Marley's Ghost moves effortlessly between reggae, folk, blues, Celtic, Gospel, old-time music, bluegrass, Scottish bagpipe tunes and Mardi Gras funk. No wonder that Marley's Ghost is known as the "One-Band Music Festival'. This inspired band uses powerful vocal harmonies and superb instrumentation to drive the music home. Marley's Ghost began as a trio in 1986 when Mike Phelan, Dan Wheetman and Jon Wilcox played for a St. Patrick's Day show. Ed Littlefield, Jr. joined soon after when they all came together at Littlefield's recording studio to work on Wheetman's solo album. In 2005 accomplished percussionist and vocalist Jerry Fletcher joined with the original four notable parts creating a synergistic whole, they banded together as Marley's Ghost.
