Sweet Yonder feat. Mark Schatz & Agi Kovacs
Add to Calendar
Sweet Yonder is a fired-up, all-women, bluegrass band -- think Steel Drivers meets the Carter Family.
They deliver a soulful punch with straight up instrumental attitude and captivating vocal harmonies. Their driving mix of banjo, mandolin, guitar, fiddle, and bass combined with powerful vocals earned them Washington, D.C. area WAMMIE nominations for Best Bluegrass Band and Best Bluegrass Album.
Mark Schatz is a southern Appalachian flatfooter and a consummate performer who brings an infectious presence, humor, and life to any stage he steps onto. He is one of the pre-eminent bass players in the Americana music scene, having toured and recorded with the likes of Bela Fleck, Tim O’Brien, Nickel Creek, Claire Lynch, and Sarah Jarosz.
He is also a master of the clawhammer banjo with two of his own solo projects on Rounder Records which feature his own compositions.
In 2020, for the first time, Mark will be combining all of these things that he loves to do in a solo show in which he dances, sings, plays, and tells colorful tales of his experiences on the road. It is a warm and kinetic presentation, not to be missed!
