Marcus Eaton is close to bona fide rockstar status now--the former Boisean lives in L.A., performed overseas twice in the past year, toured with David Crosby as a member of his backing band and played with the rock icon on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. On top of all of that, Eaton is working on a new album (featuring Crosby) that he plans to release in late 2014. Like so many artists, he is often asked to donate his time and talent for any number of causes. But when home calls, Eaton tries to answer. When he met Idaho Dance Theatre Artistic Director Marla Hansen a few weeks ago, it was easy for Eaton to say yes when she asked him to put on an IDT fundraiser concert.
"I think it's really important to the future of art for artists, whether they're dancers, musicians, visual artists or whatever, to collaborate," Eaton said.
Eaton will perform solo and said he'll likely play a few songs from the upcoming album. While there won't be a collaboration on stage, there will certainly be one in spirit.
