Marc Berger's life has been about pursuing twin passions: creating, recording and performing his original songs and exploring the American West. He’s performed at Austin's SXSW Music Festival and the Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals and has opened for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His antinuclear anthem The Last One was a staple of Richie Havens' concerts. Marc’s critically acclaimed album, RIDE, a collection of songs all having to do with the romance of the West, has received national airplay and been licensed by STARBUCKS for worldwide in-store airplay. At this special concert, Marc and the fabulous RIDE Band will perform songs from the album and Marc will share some unforgettable stories about his experiences as an easterner in the mountain and desert West.
