Weekend Watch: Mary Marshall Quartet featuring Russ Peterson
Mary Marshall is stepping back into the spotlight. A reserved presence on the local jazz scene, the pianist flexes her musical muscle on Prairie Public Television’s “Prairie Musicians” series and in person tonight when she plays the Hotel Donaldson Lounge, 101 Broadway, Fargo. Whether she’s warming up for her gig in two weeks at the Celebration of Women and their music, or just keeping warm in the cold months by letting her fingers walk the keyboard, the Wahpeton, N.D., performer’s presence makes all listeners winner. Marshall is backed by her quartet, featuring saxophonist Russ Peterson. Music starts at 8 p.m. The ID-only show is free. (701) 478-1000.
