Mark Harrison Band

Fri 21st Jan

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 they go. 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’. 

His band features Charles Benfield on double bass and Ben Welburn on drums/percussion, who form a unique and exciting rhythm section, with extraordinary interplay. 

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 finger-picker and slide player, with a very distinctive style, Mark tours extensively with the band. He has released seven 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. In 2021 Mark was nominated in the UK Blues Awards.
