It was on a trip to Telluride, Colorado in 1989 that Mark Vann won the banjo contest and met Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman pickiní late night at the campground. Mark was enticed from his home and business by his new friends who convinced him he needed to play banjo for a living. Soon he and Jennifer loaded up the truck and headed for Colorado to join the Left Hand String Band. Shortly afterwards, Leftover Salmon was born, and thus began life on the road.

For the next twelve years Mark brought the banjo to whole new audiences and genres of music. He quickly became one of the most respected players in his field and brought immense joy to those lucky enough to hear him.

On March 4, 2002 Mark Vann, age 39, succumbed to the effects of cancer at his home near Longmont Colorado. His six month battle with the disease was marked by immense love and support from family, friends, and the music community across the country.
