Mark “N” The Blues is a high energy solo/duo show with Mark Bishop playing songs by Robert Johnson, Doc Watson, Lip Manscombe, Blind Blake, Doc Watson and others. Mark has also adapted classic songs from the Animals, Rolling Stones and Rose Tatto. Mark uses both the resonator, cigar box and the acoustic guitars to pick and slide his way through blues classics.
Mark is a seasoned muscian who has played in country and rock bands and currently plays solo and duo around the club circuit. His passion for acoustic finger picking and the delta blues lead him to Brother John from the The Blues Preachers who has motivated Mark to pursue the Delta/Acoustic blues Style.
Mark often has some of Sydney’s best blues harp players playing with him including Eric K. Betts, Joe Berenguel and Doug Stuart. These guys are seasoned players and are sought after musicians.
Have a listen and come see Mark play to hear a style of music that helped create the Blues and R&R music we have today.
