Hereford born Mark T. will be promoting his 10th CD release, From Blues to Rembetika, with a gig at De Koffie Pot on the Left Bank on Friday, August 11.

Originally from Hereford, but now living near Reading, Mark T. has been playing his unique blend of folk, blues and roots music since the mid eighties, solo and in the company of esoteric collaborators The Brickbats, roots rock band Rootdogs and more recently with Charles Spicer (Mellstock Band) and Fran Wood.

High points have included an Arts Council award for his LP The Room, main stage Saturday night appearances at the Bracknell, Pontardawe and Christchurch festivals as well as sessions for BBC Radio 2 live from their Paris Theatre, London and Pebble Mill in Birmingham as well as gigs in Denmark, Italy and two tours of France. Also of note was a recent performance in the Salon Noir cave in Niaux, France amongst the 15,000 year old cave paintings.

He returns to Hereford, immediately after a residency at Café 38, in Randers, Denmark.
