The festival also featured plenty of collaboration, including an appearance by Marcus King during The Revivalists’ performance and several guests sit-ins during The Marcus King Band’s Saturday night “Family Jam” set.The Marcus King Band’s second-annual festival coincided with the release of their brand-new LP, Carolina Confessions, released on Friday, October 5th. As King explained to Billboad about the album,I wanted this record to focus a little bit more on songwriting and the structure of the tune itself.” King describes the ten-song catalog as “the confessional side of things. Music, for me, is a way to say what’s on my mind and kind of a way to explain that — just like true confession, if you feel guilty and want to get some things off your chest. That’s how writing is and making music is for me.The Marcus King Band – Carolina Confessions – Full AlbumBelow, you can check out a beautiful gallery of photos from the second day of The Marcus King Band Family Reunion 2018 courtesy of photographer Emily Butler.For a full list of The Marcus King Band’s upcoming performances, head to the band’s website here.Marcus King Band Family Reunion | Pigsah Brewing | Black Mountain, NC | 10/6/18 | Photos: Emily Butlerlast_img
