Emory Lester is one today's foremost exponents of the acoustic mandolin. His landmark recording project "pale Rider, "the Emory Lester Set", and "Cruisin the 8" have placed him among the elite mandolinists of our time. Currently playing with Wayne Taylor and the Appalossa and noted "Clawgrass" banjoist Mark Johnson, Emory is touring across the US, Canada, Eurpoe and the UK. Emory and Mark have also been featured on several performances with Steve Martin, most notably on the 'Late Night with David Letterman' show in September 2012.
Emory has been teaching master series workshops at events such as the Steve Kuafmann Camp, the Mandolin symposium, Transatlantic Bluegrass School I Wales UK, Alaska Guitar Camp, and many other prestigious learning environments
