Album Notes
"Every great once in a while a musician comes along who can make an instrument speak in tongues." - Deseret News. In demand as a session musician, touring artist and workshop leader, Mark is an outstanding player of the `ukulele and the Hawaiian slack key guitar. His "Learn To Play Fingerstyle Solo's for `Ukulele" (Mel Bay Publications) has introduced thousands to the joys of playing fun, complex music on the instrument.

Aunty Nona gave him the name Kailana, which means "floating gently on the surface of the sea" - not a bad description of the sound of his `ukulele and slack key guitar.

But Mark also has another side. He hosts "The `Ukulele Happy, Hour," a free-form jam session that brings together some of the country's top musicians fool around on the uke. He's been known to strap on a Strat to front such obscure bands as Los Viagras and the Tex Pistols.

Mark has performed just about anywhere – from Barrow to Boston; Sligo to San Diego. He's shared the stage with performers as diverse as Grover Washington, Jr.: Norton Buffalo; Doc Watson, and the Skagway Girls Jr. Varsity basketball team. He once worked as a banjo playing gorilla in Dublin, but that's another story...
