Loren and Mark Concert, Saturday, October 5th at 8PM
International Guitar duo Loren and Mark will be coming to the Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake for a night of world class music on Saturday, October 5th at 8PM.
Loren and Mark have had a busy year so far touring the USA and Europe and are excited to be returning to Saranac Lake! In the past 6 months they have headlined several festivals including the annual Chet Atkins Guitar Convention in Nashville Tennessee, the Cordes Sensibles guitar festival in Bordeaux France, and the Ossipee Valley Music Festival in Maine. The duo has also recently performed on several nationally syndicated TV shows such as the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour and Inside Music Row.
Mark, an internationally recognized guitarist who hails from New Zealand and Loren, the youngest instrumentalist to ever appear on the Grand Ole Opry were first brought together by the Australian Guitar sensation Tommy Emmanuel. They attribute Tommy, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed as their biggest influences, and have performed with Tommy Emmanuel several times this year. Emmanuel says of the duo “Fresh and exciting… these guys ROCK!”
Loren and Mark share a unique musical chemistry seldom found among musicians. Their live performances feature not only their spectacular technical grasp of the guitar, but also their outstanding musicality and spontaneous creativity. The interaction between the two musicians is as much a feature of their shows as is the world-class guitar playing that they both display. Loren and Mark perform a varied repertoire of original and arranged music consisting of stunning guitar duets as well as songs, giving them a wide appeal. The style of guitar playing is largely built upon the thumb-picking techniques pioneered by guitar greats Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, and their songs feature Loren’s superb vocals with some beautiful harmonies from Mark.
Their debut album received a SAMMY award for ‘Best Americana Album’ in 2011, and their latest album titled Onward was recently released in August 2012.
