“Saw Marc for the first time, (April 2nd 2022), at The Little Red Wagon Winery, in Shawville, Quebec, when he was touring his Winter Folk Show. Wow…so impressed! The show was so captivating, blending great songwriting, storytelling, history as well as little known mysteries, especially of the Ottawa Valley. We found ourselves riveted and totally immersed in Marc’s performance. The set list was composed primarily of Marc’s own original songs, but thrown in for good measure were crowd favourites from David Francey, Bob Dylan and the like. A TOTALLY enjoyable evening of great musicianship. Thanks Marc!” - Mark K.
