The music of Roger Marin blurs the lines of alternative, garage and roots creating what he calls the un-genre of genres.

Marin will be bringing his unique sound to Sneaky’s Pub in Elkford tonight.

He got his start as a teenager, playing alongside his father, who was a roaming country artist.

For several years, Marin played pedal steel and lead guitar with Fred Eaglesmith and the Flying Squirrels.

Marin is now touring on his own and his honest and genuine approach to music and song writing has earned him the respect of many of his fellow singer-songwriters.

He has worked with Willie Nelson, Hayes Carll, Adam Carroll, Scott Nolan and Gordie Tentrees.

Marin is touring on the release of his new album, High Roads. His songs highlight the experiences of the mechanics and road warriors he was raised with. He is no stranger to the rough men and the tough lifestyles he writes about.

His new album showcases songs like Rollin’ On, Hang his Hat and City Girl, which paint a portrait of life on the road.
