 Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb share a unique musical chemistry. Their varied repertoire of original and arranged music consists of stunning guitar duets and beautiful vocal harmonies, giving them a wide appeal. Influenced by Jazz, Bluegrass, Western and Popular music; their guitar style is largely built upon the thumb-picking techniques pioneered by guitar greats Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed.

The Duo has toured extensively in the USA and in Europe, and they have a rapidly growing fan base. Loren and Mark’s live performances feature not only their spectacular technical grasp of the guitar, but also their outstanding musicality and ability to be spontaneously creative. The interaction between the two musicians is as much a feature of their shows as is their world-class guitar playing. This is guitar playing like you’ve never seen!    

“They create a brilliant stereo sound of two fine guitarists... pretty amazing” - Lloyd Maines, multiple Grammy award winning producer

“Fresh and exciting… these guys ROCK! ” – Tommy Emmanuel
