Marc is a Nottingham-based folk singer and songwriter, and Glasspool Records has recently released his new CD, Brisk & Breezy. His first album The Hawthorn Spring (2013) received great reviews and wide radio play including BBC Radio 2’s Folk Show, and it so impressed Mike Harding that he played three tracks from it in one programme. It was also among Roger Williams’ ‘Magnificent Seven’ best albums of the year on A World of Difference.
Marc has been around the folk scene for many years, and played folk clubs and festivals such as Towersey, Sidmouth, Music on the Marr and Gate to Southwell (where he runs the Open Mic Competition). He’s also well-known on the Nottingham live music scene for his former band Marc Block and the Breezes, later Marc Block Trio, though currently he’s performing solo.
Marc also continues to be roadie and accompanist to veteran folk legend Roy Bailey, appearing on his recent recordings Stories and Live at Towersey Festival 2015.
