Mark Wydra

Mark can be heard on Liz Mandeville’s Earwig CDs Back In Love Again (4949) and Red Top (4954).

Mark Wydra, who has performed professionally since 1973,  plays and teaches all styles of guitar (classic rock, jazz, blues, country) with a heavy emphasis on Chicago blues/jazz. Mark has played with many of Chicago’s top blues talents, including Eddy Clearwater, Bob Riedy Blues Band, Sam Lay, and Cary Bell. He has worked in shows with Chuck Berry, Jr. Wells, Bo Diddley, and is currently performing with a swing band, The Blues Swingers. This guy is the hardest working guy in show biz. He has been teaching at Tobias Music in Downers Grove, Illinois for 30 years. When he isn’t teaching, he’s gigging. When he isn’t gigging he’s down in the studios teaching. When does this guy sleep ?
