Mark is a founding member of the popular Ozarks family band Big Smith, with whom he toured and recorded for sixteen years.
Their debut release, Wolf Hunter, is an album of sixteen folk songs from the Ozarks, arranged by The Creek Rocks and gathered from the collections of folklorists Max Hunter of Springfield, Missouri (Mark’s hometown) and John Quincy Wolf of Batesville, Arkansas (Cindy’s hometown). Joining them on the album are bassist Jason Chapman of The Chapmans bluegrass band and percussionist Jay Williamson, also of Big Smith. Cindy and Mark sometimes enlist a a host of talented musician friends to back them up, but will be performing as a duo for this performance.
