International guitar champion coming to Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -  International guitar champion Mark Kroos is coming to the First Baptist Church in Cape Girardeau.

The concert starts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22.

Admission is free of charge but a love offering will be taken.

Mark Kroos uses a tapping technique that involves both hands fretting the strings while he plays two guitar necks at the same time.

Winner of the Guitar Player Magazine's 2011 International Guitar Superstar Competition in Nashville Mark has shared the stage with artists such as Phil Keaggy, Sister Hazel and Edwin McCain.

"Mark Kroos plays with a sensitivity to the music and positive energy that is truly refreshing," said Muriel Anderson, 1989 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion.

For the past five years Mark has been touring in the US and Canada as an independent artist.

He has released two full-length guitar albums as well as his DVD music videos and live studio performances.

You can check out Mark performing on YouTube.

Currently he is on tour for a month and a half in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Georgia, Colorado, South Dakota and Minnesota.

"I closed my eyes and heard more than one guitarist ... It's obvious that Mark is never musically alone," said Phil Keaggy, Grammy-Nominated Guitarist.
