Boise’s Eaton to appear tonight on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’


Singer-guitarist Marcus Eaton, who grew up in Idaho and cut his teeth in Boise’s music scene, contributed heavily to the new David Crosby album. He’s now a member of Crosby’s touring band, as illustrated in this photo taken at sound check today for “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” (Eaton is in the middle with the acoustic guitar.)

The performance will air during a broadcast that begins at 11:35 p.m. tonight. Eaton told me they expect to do the opening track from Crosby’s album, “Croz.” The song is called “What’s Broken.” Set that DVR.

At a concert Tuesday in New York, pictured below, Eaton even sang lead when they did a tribute to the late Pete Seeger with “Turn! Turn! Turn!”
