Marco Marchi wins the Swiss Blues Award 2022

MarcoMarchi1At least 200 gigs a year have made Marco Marchi one of the "Hardest Working Men in Swiss Blues Biz". Born in Milan, he earned his musical spurs in bands of every stylistic hue. Since the guitarist and singer put down roots in Ticino, however, he has indulged in his great love - the various blues styles from the first half of the 20th century. With his Mojo Workers, founded in 2009, Marco Marchi tours in changing line-ups, skilfully interprets classics from the Mississippi Sheiks to Robert Johnson, and writes exciting, genre-true original compositions. Marco Marchi won the Swiss Blues Challenge in Geneva in 2011 and was the first Swiss representative to travel with his band to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge.

The jury of the Swiss Blues Award and the board of the Blues Festival Basel congratulate Marco Marchi and wish him continued joy, health and success.
