About Mark

Mark has played violin since childhood, and brings a unique mix of classical technique and improvisation and innovation in interpretation. Mark's collaborators cover all genres of music - South American Folk, rock, blues, jazz to name just a few.

In recent years Mark has increasingly specialised in sensitive and creative accompaniment of singer songwriters, and in his instrumental work on the music of  France and Brittany. In his time in Wales Mark established his reputation for an enthusiastically infectious teaching style, informed by the Natural Voice Practitioner movement, and allied to communicating the strong rhythmic drive and lyrical beauty that characterises his playing.

Mark recently completed a new recording of "Music for Old Style Step Dancing".  You can find more information, full reviews and order copies here

Recent review:

 Joe McGuiggan - All Ireland Traditional Dance Champion, Step Dance Teacher & Performer, Derry, N Ireland

"Mark's solo fiddle is perfect accompaniment, allowing the dancer to bring out the rhythm of the tune.  The CD provides me with a very accessible resource for my weekly dance class."
