Marc Delgado is a songwriter, storyteller & poet who combines folk music & rocknroll with a sharp wit & cinematic eye to deliver songs tinged with pathos & humour. His latest record, Wildwood Road, is a chronicle of his life in California where he grew up, a tour through the seedy motels & dive bars of The Central Valley & Southern Coast. Whether performing with his band or performing solo, Delgado weaves fact & fiction on stage with the heart of a stand-up comic in search of the gritty truth. He is currently at work on a new record in Woodstock, NY where he resides with his wife & daughter.
