Mark Sylvester

Mark Sylvester composes and performs instrumental guitar music. His many influences include folk and world music, J.S. Bach, cool jazz, prog rock, American primitive, and contemporary guitar music. Mark's first solo CD, American Gypsy, is a collection of 15 original pieces for solo acoustic guitar. DC-area public radio listeners may have heard Mark’s “Dance of the Misfits" on WAMU during talk shows and news breaks. Since his late teens, Mark has also performed as a singer/songwriter. For several years Mark performed with the avant-folk group, Tree Surgeons, and his original songs appeared on their two CDs, Eye of Time and Witness. He is currently recording stripped-down versions of his original songs in a collection called Songs of Youth. In addition to performing as a soloist, Mark performs with several DC-area groups, including Great Noise Ensemble, Selling Fairfax by the Pound, and Trio Trela.
