"Marble Fork brings eclectic rock to 210 in Visalia"

By Christina Thorne: January 2014 Page 7c

Friday nights at 210 are about to get livelier with Marble Fork joining our cover free Friday night music lineup the second Friday each month through April.

After listening to their CD, it was surprising to learn that this group, based out of Three Rivers, is made up of just musicians. This band sound like a whole lot more.

"There is a passion behind each song," said Chas. Haws, who plays the Chapman Stick, provides vocals and writes music for the group. "Every song tells a story."

Their sound is hard to peg into a specific genre.

"What do we sound like? Haws said. "This is a question I get all of the time. Some people compare the vocal style to that of The Doors. At time the music has the feel of Pink Floyd. Other tunes come closer to the folk genre or even southern soft rock. Add a couple of reggae beats in there too."

The Chapman Stick plays a large part in defining their sound. It was developed in 1969 by jazz guitarist Emmett Chapman and popularized by session player Tony Levin on tour with Peter Gabriel, and recording with King Crimson... - Vislalia Times-Delta
