 60th Anniversary Concerts

Marty Wendell has been making music for 60 years. He grew up in a time when radio stations played many genres of music but the music that impacted him the most came from the artists who recorded for Sun Records and gave birth to Rock & Roll. He also developed a love of Country Music as well. Throughout his career he has covered a wide variety of songs and has written many of the songs that he has recorded. His concerts pull together Roots, Americana and Rockabilly influences. In the mid 60’s he also played in Greenwich Village Coffeehouses where people were hungry for original songs. He continued to develop his songwriting craft and began his recording career in New York City. He has recorded 18 albums and will have new releases in 2024 including an Early Years compilation. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business.

In 2024 Marty will share the songs and stories that have shaped his music. He will bring songs both old and new, both classics and originals. “Marty Wendell is a living connection to Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and the early Sun artists.” His concerts have something for everyone!
