Loren and Mark

International Guitar Duo & associates of Tommy Emmanuel, Loren Barrigar (Syracuse, NY) & Mark Mazengarb (New Zealand). 

“Fresh and Exciting… these guys ROCK!!”
Tommy Emmanuel, Australian guitar virtuoso

Loren and Mark first met in 2005 when they spent a few days working with the great Tommy Emmanuel at Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch guitar camp. Mark was a college kid, just completing his degree in classical guitar at the University of North Carolina; Loren was already a seasoned performer, but it was his first serious look at acoustic guitar. After the workshop, Mark visited Loren and they spent some time picking guitar – and picking each other’s brains.

In 2009 they met again in Nashville at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS) convention, an international gathering of hundreds of guitarists. That set the stage for the 2010 CAAS convention where they were on the schedule of performers. Though they were not originally listed to play on the big Saturday night finale, they were added to the show due to popular demand from those who heard them throughout the week.

Loren and Mark's varied repertoire of original and arranged music consists of stunning guitar duets as well as songs, giving them a wide appeal.

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, and their songs feature Lorens superb vocals and some beautiful  harmonies from Mark.

Barrigar and Mazengarb have toured extensively in both the USA and in Europe, and their fan base is rapidly expanding. They recorded their first album together the summer of 2011 which won a SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Awards) for Best Album at the Northeast Music Industry Conference, and their second album Onward also won a SAMMY. The title track 'Onward' won first place at the International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) for Best Instrumental. Their most recent album is live from their 2013 tour of Europe

Loren and Marks 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.
