San Francisco musician Mark Growden is rapidly gaining fans in Santa Fe. Mark began his musical career scoring instrumental pieces for dance and theater companies quickly winning awards. “I am first and foremost trained as an avant garde saxophonist and as a composer,” explains Growden. “My job is to take traditions and turn them on their heads – to break the traditions and to innovate.”

Whether it’s with the accordion, bass saxophone, banjo or bicycle handlebars, Mark uses sly intelligence as he draws out what was always there, but we failed to hear, challenging us to recognize what our favorite songs actually say to us – and about us.
