About the Author

Born in 1954 in Kansas City, Missouri, Mark Biggs started playing the mountain dulcimer in 1979 when he found a job playing music in exchange for room and board in a small Greek restaurant on the south side of Crete. He's come a long way from those early "ad lib" days, winning many listeners' ears and a growing national reputation along the way. The author of two books, The Mountain Dulcimer (Mel Bay Publicaitons) and the Season of the Dream Songbook, he has also recorded two record albums, Not Licked Yet (Centennial Records) and Season of the Dream (Kicking Mule). Besides writing and recording for the dulcimer, he has taught hundreds of students around the Midwest at workshops, at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, and through the Continuing Education Departments at Southwest Missouri State University and Drury College in Springfield, Missouri, near his home near Table Rock Lake.

Mark has won many dulcimer championships, including: First Place (1984), National Mountain Dulcimer Championships, Winfield, Kansas; First Place (1983 & 1981), Southern Regionals in Arkansas; Third Place (1983), National Championships in Winfield, Kansas; First Place (1981), Ozark Mountain Championships, Branson, Missouri; and First Place (1980), Midwest Dulcimer Championships in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Mark has played and demonstrated the dulcimer to thousands of people at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri for the past several years. When the park closes for the winter, Mark can be heard in concert throughout the Midwest.
