Rolly Brown/Marcy Marxer

House Concert/Guitar Workshop


         For our next concert/workshop of the Montchanin Mountain Music Series we are delighted to host acoustic musicians and guitar wizards extraordinaire Rolly Brown & Marcy Marxer for a house concert and afternoon guitar workshop in our home in Centerville DE on Saturday March 26. Our location is near Longwood Gardens in Chadds Ford PA, and is convenient to Philly, Wilmington, and NJ.


         These artists are internationally known for their exceptional guitar virtuosity, as well as their skill and dedication in teaching guitar students at all levels. On Saturday afternoon 3/26 both artists will co-teach a three hour instructional workshop from 1:00-4:00 PM, followed by an evening house concert at 8:00 PM. Tickets for the afternoon workshop will be $65, and tickets for the evening house concert are $25 (the price for both events combined will be $80). Please note that all proceeds for these events will be immediately and directly turned completely over to the artists…


         In addition to the Saturday workshop & house concert, both artists will also be available on Sunday morning for a limited number of private lessons... These slots are likely to fill quickly, so interested students are encouraged to contact us ASAP to reserve an opening.

Seating for these events is quite limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. For additional information or to reserve tickets please contact Steve Broitman at (302) 654-8306 or at

Rolly Brown


Rolly Brown is a lifelong student of the guitar. He has been a National Fingerpicking Champion (1980), a Philadelphia Music Award nominee, a solo performer, sideman, and teacher. Folk, blues, ragtime, bluegrass, country, & jazz have each, over the past 46 years, been his passions. Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls Rolly’s guitar sound “an exceptionally melodic, articulate playing style that takes full advantage of the acoustic guitar’s beautiful tone.”

Wise sage Bennett Hammond says, “He's the real deal, the gen-you-wine article, the guitar picker's guitar picker.”

Blues master Andy Cohen (who IS prone to hyperbole) told Rolly, "Dammit, you are the best that ever was. You may quote me."

Rolly is also a highly acclaimed instructor who has taught and performed both fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar at Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamps, the Swannanoa Gathering, Summer Acoustic Music Week in New Hampshire, Chet Atkins Appreciation Society, and many other venues.
