Mark and Cindy Lemaire

On festival day, watch and hear  Mark and Cindy at

in a special performance for our 2020 online festival!

 In a single show, Mark and Cindy take you from pin-drop delicate guitar solos to raucous sing-alongs. Their tear-in-your-eye husband-wife harmonies are so perfectly matched that they seem like two people with one voice. The couple tour the world, performing from New Zealand to Scotland, Sweden to Canada– as well as here in the states. Mark’s other life is recording engineer and producer for clients ranging from Jimmy Miller (Rolling Stones, Blind Faith, etc) to the San Francisco Symphony and, of course, everybody in between.

 “Lemaire has received critical kudos from the industry as well as his musical peers. Performing with Cindy Lemaire, the blend of voices adds a perfect exclamation point to Mark’s virtuoso guitar playing and songwriting.”       – The Pasadena Weekly

“It was a master class in finger style and harmony singing. One of many highlights – for me – was Mark’s solo fusion of `Whiter Shade of Pale’ and `Bach’s `Air on a G String’.  Simply breathtaking.” -Don Hurley- Ruskin House Folk Club—Croyden, UK

“Complex, sophisticated song arrangements. His guitar playing is so good, it might distract you from his compelling, engaging melodies and sharp songwriting… but only for a second.-Richard Rice, Director, San Francisco Free Folk Festival
