Jenna is a very talented musician and and performer. Mark continues to share the platform with Jenna Witts whenever he has an opportunity, sensitively supporting her beautiful self-penned songs. He was delighted to be asked to record with her on her latest album Hitchhiker - copies now available from her website.
GigCB is the crazy, big band Mark plays with - variously described as "foot stomping, bottle hugging fun …!" led by the unforgettable Chris Shaw.
Bal Feirste is the Belfast-based French music and dance organisation Mark was chairing when living in Northern Ireland. The group hosts a Bal Folk on the second Saturday of the month at the Sunflower in Belfast - do go along when you are in town.
