Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb share a special musical chemistry seldom found among musicians. Their varied repertoire of original and arranged music has won them countless fans around the world and many awards, including Best Instrumental for their original track Onward at the International Acoustic Music Awards.
Influenced by guitar greats Merle Travis and Chet Atkins, their live performances of instrumental and vocal duets demonstrate a spectacular technical grasp of the guitar, as well as outstanding musicality and creative interaction. With a repertoire drawn from Americana, bluegrass, jazz, country and western and classical influences, a Loren and Mark concert is an exceptionally exhilarating experience.
Most of the concerts will be presented by Arts on Tour, a non-profit organisation sponsored by Creative New Zealand that aims to bring high quality music to the rural areas of New Zealand.
