A rare thing - a gig review on this site. It has been a few years since the death of our esteemed reviewer Barry Travena and we couldn't hope to follow his eloquence so the reviews have ceased.

However I thought it was worth penning a couple of paragraphs about the gig last night with Mark Harrison. No easy task keeping an audience entertained for two hours with all his own material but Mark did the job superbly.

Mark was new to me and as far as I know to the rest of the audience but his lyrics kept us enthralled throughout. Between songs he had the right amount of chat and it was always relevant to the next song and added to the interest. His lyrics are different and cover a range of subjects, he even included one interesting song about the second world war! Thanks also to Chris who helped with the sound, even a deaf-head like me could hear every word.
