Touring Scotland in September 2022, Mark Lemaire and Claudia Russell join forces as California Calling. Both are established solo artists in their own right, and now Marks incredible acoustic guitar and road-tested songs pair perfectly with Claudias creative lyrics and her incredible voice. Mark is returning for his fourth successful tour of Scotland. Claudias dad, Val Rosing, was born in the UK and was the vocalist with the Henry Hall BBC Dance Orchestra. Remember the big hit Teddy Bears Picnic? Claudias got her dads pipes! When their tear-in-your-eye harmonies kick in, its clear Mark and Claudia are greater than the sum of their parts.

Mark Lemaire is known for his unique guitar style: he incorporates masterful fingerpicking, slap-and-tap harmonics, hand percussion, and a delicate touch that goes straight to your heart. While Mark's solo guitar pieces stand as complete statements, his songs run from poignant songs about married life and the strange surprise of middle age creeping up on us.

Claudia Russell has shared stages with Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Loudon Wainwright III, Steve Forbert, Tish Hinojosa, Kris Kristoffersen, Willie Nelson, Darryl Purpose, Peter Rowan, Rosalie Sorrels and Bill Staines, among many others. Boston's WUMB FM named Claudia the Best New Artist of 2000, the East Bay Express named her Best Musician in 2006, and she has twice been selected as a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition. Claudia was a 2004 finalist in the Sisters Folk Festival Songwriters contest in Bend Oregon and the 2002 KRCL Songwriting contest in Salt Lake City.

At their shows, audiences do a lot of laughing, but many are also moved to tears. The music ranges from subtle, pin-drop delicate solo guitar to raucous sing-alongs. While the music is beautiful, the experience of simply being together is a key part of the evening. Folks leave at the end both grinning and fulfilled.
