Marc Bridge has been characterized as "a story teller with a guitar who uses modern day society, politics and relationships to weave an entertaining view of life through his twisted lens. It's the twist that he puts on topics that makes his songs and performances unique and memorable. Says Bridge: "My style reflects the influences of the folk, rock and country music that I grew up with in addition to my love for social and political satire." American Dream, his debut CD, will take you on a journey through the faults, endearments, and quirks of modern American society. Marc's CD has garnered wide acclaim, as well as several songwriting competition awards and prizes, including a refrigerator (ask him about it)! 12 - 12:45 pm:
