“This will be Mark’s second time with us,” said Pastor Mike McAvoy. “Mark is a great person as well as a phenomenal musician. He brings a lot to his show beyond his amazing talent, but if you’ve never seen someone play two guitar necks at one time, then it’s worth it just for that.”
The free concert will showcase Kroos’ instrumental style, which is distinguished by open harmonies, polyphonic textures and tapping technique.
Kroos’ music is heavily influenced by folk, Celtic, indie and punk rock artists as well as other great guitarists such as Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel and Leo Kottke. In July of 2011 Kroos took first place in Guitar Player Magazine's International Guitar Superstar Competition in Nashville.
The event, to be held at the church at 1289 E. Main St., is sponsored by Santo Vida Natural Wellness Center, Bradford Area Dance Center, Bradford Nature Co., Studio K and Hatcher Media.
