Breakout star Marcus King headlines Friday night at Old Settlers Days 2023
Old Settlers Days has announced that breakout star Marcus King will headline Friday night June 16, 2023.
GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, performer, and songwriter Marcus King was downright destined to play music. By age eight, the fourth generation Greenville, SC native performed alongside pops, grandpa, and his uncles for the first time. Logging thousands of miles on the road as “The Marcus King Band,” he established himself with unparalleled performance prowess and a dynamic live show.
During 2020, Marcus linked up with Dan Auerbach [The Black Keys] and cut his solo debut El Dorado, garnering a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Americana Album.” Beyond praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and more, Rolling Stone christened it “excellent,” and Associated Press went as far as to claim, “El Dorado already stands out as a definite high point of 2020.

In between packing venues on his own, Marcus performed alongside Chris Stapleton, Greta Van Fleet, and Nathanial Rateliff in addition to gracing the bills of Stagecoach and more with one seismic show after the next. Along the way, he caught the attention of Rick Rubin and signed to American Recordings.
