Mark Schatz plays the claw-hammer style of banjo, which pre-dates the dominant Scruggs-style picking associated with bluegrass. Schatz's interests and experience, however, which include jazz and new acoustic music, lend his composing a range and depth that allows him to meld the old and the new in a completely natural, and unique, manner.'-David Royko, Chicago Tribune 'Steppin' in the Boiler House,' Mark's second solo album, features his own traditionally innovative sound: flawless clawhammer banjo playing, new melodies with the heart and soul of the old tunes, and a groove that blends the grit and swing of an old time string band with the drive and precision of contemporary bluegrass. The core of the band is Schatz, Casey Driessen, Jim Hurst, and Missy Raines, and special guests include Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Tim O'Brien, and co-producer, Bela Fleck.
