Horsefeather, 13th Hour ( Guitar, vocals) (Fine Guitar Artisan)

For Mark Swanson, 13th Hour represents a loop back to where music first became a passion in his life. Although Mark has played electric guitars in much louder bands over the years, he was originally pulled into music by more gentle and contemplative artists such as Simon and Garfunkel. Mark founded the country-rock band “Horsefeather” in the mid-1970s, enjoying a great deal of local and regional success before he changed musical directions and “went solo” in the late 1980s. A nationally known maker of guitars and other stringed instruments, including clients such as Joel Mabus and The Dixie Chicks, Mark combines an encyclopedic knowledge of songs with an enviable talent for playing them.
