Mark Lucas

Kentucky born: backyard string bands, a grandmother who sang Appalachian ballads, another who played piano for the silent movies. Solo career launched in 2010 with an LP whose stories evoked the American past. Titled Dust, that record released to wide airplay on folk and EuroAmericana radio. A warm critical reception heard influences ranging from Tom Waits to mountain traditional. The 2012 follow-up, Uncle Bones, features the legends, fairytales, and ghost stories of mythical Cherokee Bend.
