At Your Request

Favorite concert pieces from the wonderfully versatile singer and virtuoso on the mountain dulcimer and English concertina. Balkan favorites, songs and dances from the British Isles and beautifully haunting Scandinavian melodies.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Gilston has been performing traditional folk music for over thirty-five years. His vast repertoire encompasses songs and instrumentals from North America and most of Europe, particularly the British Isles, Scandinavia, and the Balkans. His performances are laced with humor and a wide base of eclectic knowledge. Among the many instruments he plays are concertina, Appalachian dulcimer, guitar, banjo, Bulgarian bagpipes, pennywhistle, ocarina, tambura, etc..

Here in his 7th CD Mark plays some of the most requested material from his concerts. The music is presented in three concert sets. Music from central Europe and the Balkans; music from the British Isles; and music from Sweden and Norway
along with his two most popular encores.

I\'m certain you\'ll enjoy this presentation as much as his enthusiastic audiences.

Here\'s what people are saying about Mark:

\"Mark Gilston is a lap dulcimer virtuoso...now there\'s two words you don\'t often hear used together in the same sentence.\" - Alan Freeman

\"I just listened to LEND ME AN EAR. It is terrific!\" - Joe Hickerson

\"I finally met Mark Gilston, who just returned from teaching at Cullowhee - what an amazing spirit and talent! Mark provided a refreshing second wind that kept me jamming and visiting until waaay past my bedtime.\" - Bing Futch

\"You have chops for miles\" - Jennifer Cutting

\"My wife and I listened to your CD and found it totally delightful. Thanks for sharing your music with us and enriching our lives.\" - Nick Bratkovich

\"His harmonic style and ease on the English concertina is truly impressive.\" - Jody Kruskal
