Laguna Presbyterian Church presents award-winning musical duo on Sunday

The community is invited to hear Grammy Award-winning acoustic guitarist Mark Hanson and award-winning vocalist Greta Pedersen at Laguna Presbyterian Church on Sunday, Jan 19. The duo will be the guest musicians for Sunday morning services at 8:30 and 10 a.m.

The husband and wife team, based out of the Pacific Northwest, have performed throughout the world sharing the stage with many greats (including Jerry Garcia)!

Their past performances at LPC have been well received and highlight the impressive music program at the downtown Laguna Beach church. Hanson is known for his finger-picking guitar playing, having earned a Grammy for Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar CD in 2005.

In addition to their traveling concerts, where they perform a mix of playful jazz, Americana, and original tunes, the duo also played and sang for the President of the United States in 2009. 

Their talents extend beyond the stage, as their high-quality educational books, CDs, and videos for guitarists have won accolades in the industry. They have an inviting repertoire of material for guitarists at every level. 

Attendees at the Sunday service are welcome to use the church’s free parking lot on Third Street. People of all faiths are always welcome.
