Mark is from Dublin, Ireland and have been involved in Irish traditional music "on and off" for almost 40 years as an accompanist, mainly guitar.
Mark says: "This CD evolved from an idea I had in 2014 to record a tune, or a set of tunes with various Irish traditional musicians I have enjoyed played with over the years. The result is a variety of tunes, instruments and playing styles, and my attempts to provide a sympathetic accompaniment in each case.
With multi-track recording, it was possible for me to layer the accompaniment to include various combinations of guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, keyboards, bass and percussion. In other cases, there is just a single accompanying instrument. I’ve also included a couple of folk songs."
Featuring: John O'Brien, Joe Toolan, Mary Rowesome, Breadan Begley, John Reagan, Paul Kelly and many others... 18 Tracks in total.
