Marcian Petrescu & Trenul De Noapte

2023 Show

Petrescu Marcian is considered the Best Blues Harmonica player of the Romanian blues scene.

For 23 years he's been a fierce and dedicated promoter of the "Harmonica Blues" genre, and his work received the seal of approval because of his collaborations with some of the greatest American harmonica masters: Sugar Blue, Charlie Musselwhite, Rick Estrin(who appeared on his studio albums - being the only Romanian blues musician who managed such a performance!). He also appeared on stage with such illustrious names as: Billy Branch, The Blues Brothers, Nine Below Zero & Kenny Neal.

His stage presence, humor, and inspired storytelling are already a trademark, while his amplified sound and approach to the harmonica make him a great attraction at any blues event.

For the 2023 edition of Open Air Blues Festival Brezoi - Vâlcea, Marcian will present a new band, a new sound, a new attitude, and a new album - "MAI MULT DECAT BLUES"("Much More Than Blues").
