Mark was born in East London. He was raised in tough and sometimes harsh surroundings, Mark often found solace and strength in music from the 60’s, 70's and 80’s with such artists as Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Emmylou Harris, John Lennon and UB40. Although being very young at the time these iconic artists and their music helped Mark to sow the seeds of everything that would follow.
Mark will be playing at The Abbey Ruins at the heart of the action on Sunday 5th July, playing host to the Big Barking Picnic with a community sing-along, other fantastic folk bands, an open air film screening of Pirates of the Caribbean and much more! Abbey Ruins Live is headlined by local legend Billy Bragg. Join us in this amazing setting and enjoy the best of world and traditional folk.
