Mark will be returning to Switzerland in March! Info & tickets links:
Mark recently visited Switzerland with many other Irish musicians as part of the tour series Songs From Ireland: Old and New, so this return is highly anticipated. Some kind words from that tour:
“… impressed with his charm and within minutes had the audience on his side.” (Schaffhauser Nachrichten 02/02/2015)
“Geary can add or take away from his songs, the result is always good; their transparent simplicity is compelling and the lush harmonies are enough to give you goose bumps..” (Zürcher Oberländer 02/02/2015)
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!
