Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Greenville VFW Post 7262 as a Spotlight Sponsor for the for their contribution to the DCCA 2016-2017 season and the upcoming presentation of guitar duo Loren & Mark at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall, Saturday, September 24 as the first show in DCCA’s 2016-2017 Artists Series. According to DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan, “DCCA is grateful for Greenville VFW Post 7262's sponsorship, which helps enable our efforts to provide culturally enriching experiences for the citizens of our community.”

VFW Post 7262 was organized in May 26, 1946 by 208 founding members. In 1975 the Post moved to its current location that is owned by the Post. In 1987 the Veteran Memorial Park was established. Besides the Post members, the Post is fortunate to also include Men’s Auxiliary, Ladies Auxiliary and the Booster members. After 70 years, the Post is still giving back to the community and serving fellow Veterans.

Darke County Center for the Arts will open their 2016-2017 season at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, September 24 with Loren and Mark, guitarists whose varied repertoire crosses genres, appealing to fans of pop, bluegrass, western, and jazz music. “These guys are widely admired by their musical peers, including guitar god Tommy Emmanuel and Grammy Award-winning producer Lloyd Maines,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “Their spontaneously creative show consists of amazing guitar duets and beautiful vocal harmonies, along with delightful interaction between the two musicians and their audiences that keeps everyone engaged and entertained,” Mr. Rawlins concluded. The concert begins at 8 p.m.

Loren Barrigar and Mark Mazengarb first started playing together in 2010 at the Chet Atkins Guitar Festival in Nashville, where they earned a standing ovation. The duo has since toured extensively across the U.S.A., as well as Canada, Europe, and Mark's homeland of New Zealand, generating a rapidly growing fan base around the world. Loren is known as the youngest instrumentalist to ever appear on the Grand Ole Opry, playing “Yackety Axe” and “Steel Guitar Rag” on the legendary show at the age of 6.
Tickets are $20.
