Emory Lester is one of this day's foremost exponents of the acoustic mandolin. The power and attack of his mandolin playing creates an infectious sound that is unmatched. His landmark recording projects have placed him among the elite mandolinists of our time.


Mark Johnson hangs his hat in Florida but learned his trade from Jay Unger while living in New York. Mark's unique style doesn't really fit into a strict category. It's very bluegrass but has overtones of traditional folk, progressive acoustic, new-grass and old-timey all mixed into one. It's authentic. It's unique. It's Clawgrass.
