The warmth and humor of Mark Shelton combine with his percussion prowess to create an assembly program that connects with audiences. Mark entertains (and educates) with his trademark high-energy style as he romps and stomps his way through an arsenal of percussion paraphernalia that can include marimba, doumbec, bones, bodhran, cajon, hammered dulcimer, snare drum, handpan, and electronic percussion.

Mark Shelton’s solo services are part of the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster.
