Mark Pennington

Mark Pennington is a local author, songwriter, and musician. Mark entertains and informs audiences with themed presentations, featuring the American songbook. Each interactive monthly performance includes historical storytelling, humor, poetry, live music, and audience participation. All G-rated and nothing controversial.

Mark dresses in period or monthly themed costume to create a festive presentation. Each audience member is greeted and appreciated, whether a fourth-grader or a senior. Social distancing, masking, two vaccines and the booster, of course. Inside or outside.

A former history teacher at Oak Ridge High School and an elementary reading specialist, Mark performs at schools, senior centers, the Folsom History Museum, and other venues throughout Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, and Amador counties. Check out the monthly themed presentations and email Mark at with your contact information to schedule these memorable performances.
