Mark Vann's spirit parted company with his body on March 4, 2002. Mark consistently lived by the motto of "Go Big!" He applied this motto to both playing music and his unending willingness to offer his time and knowledge to teach anybody who wanted to learn. He encouraged others to "Dream Big," "Go Big," and "Pick Big," and personally supported their efforts to do so.
The Mark Vann Foundation was created to continue the spirit of joy, gratitude, and generosity that Mark brought to our collective communities through his life and music. The Mark Vann foundations primary mission is to serve community based non-profit organizations bringing light, love, and laughter into the lives of those in need through nature, music, and the arts; and to provide a conduit for kindhearted people with similar values to nurture impactful positive change within their own communities.
This year the 4th annual Mark Vann Foundation Holiday Benefit is no exception to the motto of "Go Big." With a strong showing of pickers, musicians, and friends from the Colorado area and beyond this show; is a must see. Besides all the great music, the night will also feature a preview of the new Leftover Salmon movie "Years in your Ears" including loads of rare and special Mark Vann footage. You never know what other musicians, artists, friends, family, or surprises might show up to celebrate the life and music of Mark Vann so make sure to come out and support the cause!
