About Mark Schatz and Bryan McDowell: This multi-generational duo presents a broad spectrum of American acoustic music, and their latest CD, “Grit & Polish,” went to No. 1 on the DJ Folk Charts in 2021. Both Schatz and McDowell are multi-instrumentalists who cruise seamlessly from old-time to bluegrass, from folk to swing, playing and singing tunes and songs, old and new, including their own original compositions.

Western North Carolina native Bryan McDowell grew up in a rich musical environment where he learned everything from Doc Watson to Charlie Parker.

Mark Schatz has toured and recorded with a who’s who of the acoustic music world including Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Tony Rice, and Tim O’Brien.

The two worked together in The Claire Lynch Band from 2009 to 2014, and they’re excited to present a new and dynamic show which of course will include some of Mark’s colorful hambone and Appalachian clog dancing.
