Leslie & Mark Duo

Leslie & Mark - a Pop Duo on Classical Guitars
Leslie Lewis and Mark Achuff have performed together for the last 3+ years at various venues throughout the LA area. Leslie and Mark specialize in performing the vocal and classical guitar duet arrangements of Howard Heitmeyer. Howard is a composer and master arranger of all genres of music for the nylon string solo guitar. Over the years he has associated with all the guitar greats from Andres Segovia and Laurindo Almeida, to Howard Roberts, Tommy Tedesco, and Barney Kessel. Howard spent many years as an active LA recording session player and as a stage performer with Bobby Troupe and other jazz and pop stars. Mark and Leslie are honored to present Howard's well crafted arrangements. Howard coaches them on a regular basis with performance tips and all kind of great stories about the good old days of jazz and the formation of the Great American Songbook.

Leslie has studied guitar with Howard for 20+ years. Mark studied the classical guitar at Cal State Fullerton and at an early age he had the privilege of taking private lessons with the guitar great, George Van Eps.

Enjoy their unique presentation of lovely vintage pop music from the 1930's 40's, 50s with some Spanish boleros added in for a touch of spice!
