American Music Concert with Mark T Small
May 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
This is not a typical concert but rather an entertaining exploration of American music history. This historical concert includes music ranging from the early 1800s to the late 1950s.
**Ticket includes a beverage of your choice!**
Mark, an extraordinarily accomplished guitarist, is no stranger to the Buzzard. The show includes Mark’s signature, foot-stompin’ blues, boogie, early rock, and honky-tonk selections. Instrumental selections include: America The Beautiful, Amazing Grace, Autumn Leaves, Maple Leaf Rag, and many other dazzling, fancy guitar arrangements.
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 affect the Spanish American War has on American guitar players or why and how fiddle music impacted the development of guitar music. All of the music is hi-lighted by Mark’s blazing acoustic guitar work. Hot guitar, smooth vocals, classic American songs: All in a one man show.
