Duncan L. Wood Band Members

Duncan L. Wood

Lead Singer and Guitarist

Duncan L. Wood is an accomplished multi-style guitarist, educator, performer and singer-songwriter.  He was incredibly blessed to learn from international concert guitarists Bart Jordan and Oscar Ghiglia, both of whom were former students of the “Father of Classical Guitar”, Andres Segovia.

Duncan received his B.S. in Psychology from Lynchburg College in Virginia. This led to 20 years of teaching, research, and writing his book, The Perfect Guitarist, which received top reviews in Acoustic Guitar, the U.K.'s #1 guitar magazine.  He has performed as the opener for Chicago; The Doobie Brothers; Rod Stewart; Jethro Tull; Peter, Paul and Mary; and others.

​Duncan's personal guitar heroes collectively inspired him to become an accomplished master of diverse styles, including fingerpicking, flatpicking, and flamenco, all of which is reflected in his original music.

Herb Chamberlain

Pianist

Mark Tinsley

Drummer and Speaker

Mark Tinsley is a true “Renaissance man.” He is a poet, musician, pastor, luthier, soldier, and professor.  His diverse interests and accomplishments allow him to engage with people in all walks of life. Mark is a teacher, having taught English and science at multiple universities and served as a dean at the largest Christian university in the world. He is a soldier, having served as a platoon leader, executive officer, and chaplain in the Army; he currently holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and is the Chief of Studies at the United States Army Chaplain Center and School’s Fielded Force Integration Directorate.

 

Mark is also a very successful pastor, having led four churches and conducted multiple workshops and seminars for those looking to enhance their marriages and families. He is an experienced artist, having written and published countless poems and fashioned handmade guitars and basses. Most recently, Mark has served as drummer for the Duncan L. Wood Band and lead speaker in the Quest for Love Tour.  And he is a husband and father of five wonderful children. 

 

However, Mark’s focus does not rest on himself or his accomplishments.  His heart’s passion is to see people grow in their love for God and others.  Through music, spoken word, personal storytelling, and humor, wit, and wisdom, Mark hopes to inspire a generation of people to begin their own quest for love.

Herb is a longtime professional church musician, author, and educator with a Bachelor of Music degree from Westminster Choir College. Playing both piano and organ at a Master level, Herb has performed at Carnegie Hall and Philharmonic Hall in New York City.


He is currently the Music Director for Amelon United Methodist Church in Madison Heights, VA. Interestingly, Herb also performed for 15 years with one of the top bands in Central Virginia, the Steve Freeman Band.  This helped prepare him well for the rigors of playing in the Duncan L. Wood Band, where he never knows quite what he’ll be asked to do next---but still does everything amazingly well!

John Bullington

Bassist

John started playing guitar when he was 20 years old and soon thereafter started a bluegrass band called Country Heritage.  He later formed a country music band called The Station. They played numerous clubs and bars in the Central Virginia area over the next six years.  Unfortunately, his guitar career was cut short by a severe finger injury on his fretting hand. This led him to switch to the electric bass, eventually playing for the Amelon United Methodist Church praise band and, later, the Duncan L. Wood Band.
