Mark is a nationally recognized musician and entertainer who has performed in numerous venues throughout the United States and Europe. His last CD was named BEST Acoustic Blues Album by Blues Blast Magazine (circulation in the USA and over 90 countries) and his recordings have reached the Top 20 on National Music Charts. Mark is an extraordinarily accomplished guitarist. His concerts include instrumentals, and singing and playing music from the early 1800s to the late 1950s. In addition to his foot-stomping Blues and Boogie Woogie musical selections, instrumental pieces include standards like: America The Beautiful, Amazing Grace, Autumn Leaves, Maple Leaf Rag, Sweet Georgia Brown, and other old-time favorites.

Mark establishes a personal connection with his audience by discussing the origin of music and providing the listener with insights into the history of the guitar and other instruments that have become critical to the development of American music. Listen and learn that the oldest guitar was discovered in Egypt and is over 3500 years old; or that Benjamin Franklin was a guitarist. You might even find out what effect the Spanish-American War had on American guitar players or why and how fiddle music impacted the development of guitar music!
