Marc has lived in Nottingham for the past 25 years, and has spent a lot of that time playing and writing folk music, initially in bands and then later as a solo artist, culminating in the release of his debut solo album 'The Hawthorn Spring'
Marc's musical weapon of choice is the Irish Bouzouki, an eight stringed instrument which has featured prominently in traditional Irish music since the 1950s when it was adapted from the original Greek Bouzouki. The original Greek instrument featured only six strings, arranged in pairs. The main difference between the two is the addition of the extra pair of strings to give a fuller sound. This sound lends itself well to the chordal accompaniments that players generally tend to favour.
