"I'm very excited to be working with the Northfield team and to be playing one of their instruments. I've learned a lot about the mandolin over the past 40 years and see this partnership and project as a chance to really explore the boundaries of what makes a great mandolin."

  Mike Marshall
Mike Marshall is one of the world’s most accomplished and versatile string instrumentalists in America today. In 2014 Mike was nominated for a Grammy Award for his recording with the Turtle Island Quartet in the ‘Classical Compendium’ category.

Mike is indeed a living compendium of musical styles. A master of mandolin, guitar, mandocello and violin, he has created some of the most adventurous and interesting instrumental music on over 40 recordings to date that seamlessly blend his American roots background with a deep understanding of Brazilian, European classical and folks styles and American jazz and pop music.
Whether playing his own compositions with Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck or Chris Thile, Brazilian choro music with Hamilton de Holanda or Baroque classical music with his partner, German mandolin virtuoso Caterina Lichtenberg, Mike is able to swing gracefully between all of these musical worlds with a unique blend of virtuosity and musical integrity that is rare in the cross-cultural musical world of today.

Mike cut his teeth on traditional American music in Florida with his own teenage bluegrass band, but by age 19 he was snatched up by the San Francisco based David Grisman Quintet to tour and record with jazz violin legend Stephane Grappelli, Tony Rice, Darol Anger and Mark O’Connor.
