Marc has recorded and/or toured with Patrick Sky, Doc Watson, Steve Goodman, Tom Paxton, The Phoenix Singers, Judy Collins, Andy Kaufman, and many others. He’s recorded hundreds of commercial jingles, played in Broadway show orchestras, on the Broadway stage, and on film scores including The Missouri Breaks.
