Mark is passionate about the potential for music to transform not only the lives of individuals and groups, but also campaigns for social and ecological justice. As comfortable in a primary school as a community-run library, activist choir or with severely disabled young adults, he delights in the sheer pleasure and release that music-making can bring. An experienced songwriter, his main tools are his voice, body and other percussion, guitar, harmonica, melodica, piano, love of improvisation and sense of humour.
About Mark’s workshop at the Call and Response event:
‘Libr’y Up Yourself!‘
Libraries as liberatory (and occasionally musical) spaces: a workshop based in the Special Collections room of Goldsmiths Library, inspired in part by the Ewan MacColl/Peggy Seeger archive which is based there.
