Mark Lemaire and Twilight

Lead Belly Stage

The music of New Acoustic performer Mark Lemaire is both ethereal and deeply grounded, the guitar playing smooth, beautiful, and not quite like anything you've heard before. Berkeley songwriter Carol Denney says that "To call him a remarkable player would be a considerable understatement - just about nobody I know is doing what Mark can do on the guitar." He's shared the stage with Tracy Chapman, Maria Muldaur, The Dixie Dregs, and bass virtuoso Michael Manring. Recording studio experiences include work with producer Jimmy Miller (Rolling Stones, Blind Faith, Traffic), and Johnny Thunders (New York Dolls).
