Though he moved away from the Gem State five years ago, it's likely that singer/songwriter/guitarist Marcus Eaton will always remain one of its favorite sons. Eaton will return to Boise on Thursday, Dec. 28, for a cozy concert in the Riverside Hotel Sapphire Room, where he'll put his quick-fingered acoustic guitar riffs, soulful lyrics and effortless baritone on display for a small crowd. Eaton is an internationally renowned artist who has spent much of the last few years living and performing in Italy—even his most recent album, Versions of the Truth (2015) was released on Italian label, Route 61 Music. Eaton began his musical career playing with his band The Lobby, and a few years ago, he worked with folk-rock legend David Crosby on Crosby's 2014 album, Croz (Blue Castle Records). Eaton usually performs solo now, allowing audiences to more fully experience how skilled and engaging he really is. If you've never seen Eaton live, you should, and here's your chance. But hurry—his shows sell out fast.
