Amazing Guitars - Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb w/ French Nights Opening
Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb 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 ability to be spontaneously creative.
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. It is difficult to classify the genre of music Barrigar and Mazengarb perform; they simply describe it as 'fingerstyle guitar'. Their varied repertoire consists of stunning guitar duets as well as songs (they both sing) which gives them a wide appeal. The music is influenced by Bluegrass, Jazz, and Country, and their style of guitar playing is largely built upon the thumb-picking techniques pioneered by guitar greats Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed.
Barrigar and Mazengarb recorded their first album together in the summer of 2011, and were invited to perform as headline guests at the CAAS convention in July of 2011 in Nashville. The duo recently won a SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Award) Award at the Northeast Music Industry Convention in November 2011. www.lorenandmark.com
