About Mark and Greta

Husband and wife team Mark Hanson and Greta Pedersen are, respectively, a Grammy-Award winning guitarist, and Young Audiences' 2009 National Artist of the Year. Their recording Then & Now was released in December of 2016.

Their concerts are a memorable mix of playful jazz, Americana, originals and eclectic pop, highlighted by blazing fingerpicking and soulful vocals.

Mark and Greta have performed around the world, sharing the stage with many greats in the field - including the late Jerry Garcia.  In 2009, they played and sang for the President of the United States. Mark’s guitar recordings play on NPR, Martha Stewart Living, and many other programs, including American Idol. He won a Grammy for his contributions to 2005's "Henry Mancini - Pink Guitar" CD.  Greta’s Magical Music Express CDs have won multiple awards including the Film Advisory Board's Award of Excellence, with licensing to Scholastic Books and other publishing and video projects. 

They will prepare a requested song for special events: "The Book of Love" (Magnetic Fields and Peter Gabriel) - learned for a wedding in New York City - is now in their standard repertoire.
