Melodically captivating, technically awe-inspiring, and brimming with exuberance, the music that emerges from the instruments of the Marc Atkinson Trio is far from your ordinary gypsy swing guitar. Ferocious but elegant guitar-driven tunes are infused with a catchy blend of influences ranging from folk to jazz to classical to world beat, producing music that's both complex and welcoming. Working their magic on a repertoire that includes intriguingly arranged classics by folks from Duke Ellington to Chopin, as well as Marc's stunning originals, this Victoria, BC-based trio has been making waves since they formed in 2000. Their second album was voted one of the top five CDs of 2002 by Acoustic Guitar magazine, and their third CD, The Marc Atkinson Trio: III, has gained great critical acclaim as well.
