Guitarist Mark T. Small is an internationally recognized musician and entertainer who has performed throughout the United States and Europe. His CD was named Best Acoustic Blues Album in 2014, and his recordings have reached the top 20 on National Music Charts. His concerts feature music from the early 1800s to the late 1950s, including his 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.

Before Mark takes the stage from 4-7PM, singer/songwriter Sarah Donner will perform from 2-3PM!
