Music with a Mission features Bruce Marshall Group in concert Saturday October 5th

Bruce Marshall
On Saturday, October 5th at 7 p.m., the very talented Bruce Marshall Group will perform in concert at the North Windham Union Church.  Bruce Marshall’s music career spans five decades and the singer, songwriter, guitarist has been a full-time musician his entire adult life. With an affinity early on for blues, rock and 60’s pop, he honed his chops in the gin mills of New England and put out his first record in ‘87. He went National with guitarist Toy Caldwell in ‘89, touring the U.S. with Charlie Daniels and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  He has fronted the Bruce Marshall Group since 1991. Their sound defies categorization, slipping seamlessly around touches of Blues, R&B, Rock and Southern Boogie.

They have shared the stage with Bo Diddley, Blood Sweat and Tears, Joe Cocker, John Hiatt, Bryan Adams, Boz Scaggs, Doobie Brothers, The Band and a host of others.  Bruce Marshall recently put out his 7th record “Borrowed Time” in 2018.  He has performed in over 9,000 shows as a pro and still plays over 200 shows a year.

“We are very proud to welcome Bruce Marshall as our season headliner to close out our seventh season for Music with a Mission,” said Dr. Richard Nickerson, Minister of Music for NWUC. “Bruce is a local treasure living in Denmark, Maine.  For over 50 years he has delighted audiences in New England and across the country, and we hope that fans from throughout Southern Maine will turn out for this benefit concert.”

cstlouis@spurwink.orgThe Music with a Mission concert series is sponsored by the North Windham Union Church, which donates a portion of the proceeds to area non-profits.  Now in our seventh season, MWAM has provided over $66,000 for mission support to the church and other community organizations. Bruce Marshall has chosen to support Good Shepard Food Bank with the community proceeds from this concert.  The mission of Good Shepherd Food Bank is to eliminate hunger in Maine by improving access to nutritious food for people in need, building strong community partnerships, and mobilizing the public in the fight to end hunger.

Tickets will be sold at the door and online and are $15 each and $5 for all students.  Seating is general admission.  The box office opens at 6:00 and the doors will open at 6:30.
