Friday Night Band Jam featuring Mark Cosgrove

  • Michener Art Museum (map)

Back by popular demand from his sold out performance at the Michener in 2017!

“Mark Cosgrove has a style on the guitar that just seems like it will never quit. He just never seems to come up for air.” (Alan Walton – Bluegrass Unlimited, USA)

Mark Cosgrove’s distinctive, creative flatpicking guitar sound is known and respected on both sides of the Atlantic, through both his own recordings and as a sideman and session player for Jerry Douglas and others. Mark has won the U.S. National Flatpicking Guitar Championship in Winfield, Kansas and also the Doc Watson Guitar Championship in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. His flatpick guitar work is notable not only for power, precision, and tone, but for his fluid high speed improvisation. Mark plays in a variety of venues as a solo performer, with his band Good Medicine, with David Bromberg, and as a member of the DePue Brothers Band. He often participates in local guitar workshops and clinics, as well.
