In just a few weeks, Mark & his guitar will be performing some solo shows in Switzerland for, as he remarks, “Testing new songs etc and boldly going where I have not boldly been before.“ Check out the gigs section of the site for more information. This visit will include a couple of shows for the Grueningen Sessions. Here’s “Fireflies” from Mark’s last visit to the Sessions with Grainne Hunt & Mark Penny.
The sports comedy film 2nd Serve featuring the song Cali Solo from Mark’s most recent album Songs About Love, Songs About Leaving is now available on iTunes in the US. You can buy it here!
Mark & the band played at the Harbour Bar in Bray back in February. While there, Mark & Gráinne Hunt made this lovely video for the title track of Mark’s 2004 album Ghosts.
Last week Mark visited with Tony Smith at Destination Banter on Newry’s Internet TV Station ahead of Sunday’s gig in the Spirit Store.
And, a little radio session from KCLR 96 Kilkenny on Saturday before Mark’s Cleeres gig in Kilkenny this Friday the 11th.
