About the Event

There is no one in music quite like Mark Harrison. He is widely

considered one of the most original and interesting artists around.

His highly individual, all-original music has taken him and his band to

some of the top venues and festivals in the UK, attracting acclaim

wherever he goes. Recent appearances on BBC Radio 2, as guest on

Cerys Matthews’s show and on the Pick Of The Week show, have

further added to his growing reputation.

Described at BBC Radio 2 as ‘quirky’ and an artist who ‘makes you

think afresh’, Mark is a totally original songwriter, a stunning

guitarist, and a master storyteller. Mark’s live shows are well-known

not only for the music but also for his introductions and explanations

of the songs, delivered in a manner often described as ‘wry’ and

‘dry’.

Mark is a songster, and his songs cover all manner of non-standard

subjects. With catchy tunes, lyrics than intrigue and engage, and

striking rhythms, they make you smile, think and move.

A thrilling, rhythmic, &nger-picker and slide player, with a very

distinctive style, Mark tours extensively with the band. He has

released six albums which have been unanimously acclaimed across

a wide range of areas of the music world, receiving a very great deal

of airplay and highly enthusiastic reviews in the UK, Europe and the

US. 2021 sees the release of Mark’s much awaited new album, THE

ROAD TO LIBERTY.
