On Saturday 17th September, Wychwood Folk Club hosts Mark Harrison with support by Farmer John at The Swan Inn, Ascott-under-Wychwood. Tickets £6 in advance or £8 on the door, and doors open at 7.30pm.
Mark Harrison belongs to the kind of songwriters who are able to convey contemporary stories of life using classic musical elements and thereby bridging the gap between music from the early 20th and early 21st century.
‘He is an excellent and expressive vocalist and a tremendous resonator guitar player as well as being a terrific songwriter who tells a variety of stories.’
‘Mark Harrison has a refreshing and totally individual style.’ ‘A high quality artist who has developed his own style, one that includes a strong bluesiness, a powerful folksy feel and, strangely, a little of the laid back feel you might expect from music made somewhere such as the Caribbean’
‘I really love that good timey old timey feel’ – Mike Harding
‘His music is both beguiling in content and authentic in tone’ – The Blues Magazine
‘Gives tremendous value at his gigs’ – Maverick magazine
Farmer John is to the Wurzels what George Martin was to the Beatles. He is the 6th Wurzel. The Wurzel that never was. He has been entertaining for over 60 years, inspired by Adge Cuttler, Farmer John has been keeping the Wurzel’s name alive and well (although most of them are still alive and well). A West Country humourist who is in great demand (especially by his missus when there’s washing up to be done)
