Kevin Christopher Marrin was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1949. He graduated from St. John-s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, with a double major in philosophy and music in 1971. After working briefly with local organbuilders Eric Fiss in Fargo, North Dakota, and Arthur Kurtzman in St. Cloud, Minnesota, he went out on his own, doing service work and tuning. His first organbuilding project on his own was rebuilding a small Wicks organ in his home parish of St. Boniface, Cold Spring, Minnesota. He received his first contract to build a new organ from St. Augustine Catholic Church, St. Cloud, Minnesota; the instrument was completed in 1978. He operates a one-person shop, K. C. Marrin Company, in Cold Spring.
