A live performance by Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb features not only their spectacular technical grasp of the guitar, but also their outstanding musicality and ability to be spontaneously creative. The two musicians' interaction is as much a feature of their shows as is their world-class guitar playing.
Loren and Mark's varied repertoire consists of stunning guitar duets and songs featuring Loren's superb vocals and beautiful harmonies from Mark. Their music is influenced by bluegrass, jazz and western; their style of guitar playing is largely built upon the thumb-picking techniques pioneered by guitar greats Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed.
Loren started playing guitar when he was four years old, and by the time he was six, played a Chet Atkins hit in front of thousands of country music fans at Grand Ole Opry. Classically trained in New Zealand, Mark discovered bluegrass and became hooked on finger-style guitar playing while on an exchange to North Carolina.
Barrigar and Mazengarb have toured extensively in both the U.S. and Europe, and their fan base is rapidly expanding. They recorded their first album together the summer of 2011.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for general admission seat selection and no-host wine bar.
