Mark Shelton


Need a Profile – This from website

The warmth and humor of Mark Shelton combine with his percussion prowess to create a family-friendly concert experience that connects with audiences.  Mark entertains (and educates) with his trademark high-energy style as he romps and stomps through an arsenal of percussive paraphernalia–and can include marimba, doumbec, hammered dulcimer, bones, cajon, bodhran, snare drum, handpan, and electronics.   The Texas Commission on the Arts has named Mark to the 2020-2022 Texas Touring Roster.


A dedicated educator, Mark has presented The Strike, Scrape, & Shake Show to thousands of students in schools and libraries.   Mark’s books for elementary music are published by Heritage Music Press.   Articles by Mark have appeared in Dulcimer Players News, Percussive Notes, Activate, and Worship Musician.  Compositions for solo keyboard percussion are  available from  HoneyRock and Per-Mus Publications.
