Mark Black & Band This blues based power trio is far from your traditional blues based outfits. Featuring amplified 12 string acoustic guitars, lap steel, didjireedoo, pumping driving roots rhythms grooves that make this act one of the hottest and dynamic live acts in the country. If the music of Hendrix’ Band of Gypsys, jam bands like Government Mule, Dave Matthews Band or John Butler Trio appeals then check out MBTrio. The band is led by singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Black, whose musical credentials include 2 self produced studio albums and now a double live album and concert dvd featuring the 14 Piece Big Band “The Roots Orchestra”. Also featuring Seamus Devenny on drums and percussion and violin and Peter Doherty on bass and double bass.

Mark Black whose live appearances included Glastonbury 2009, guested and performed with Moya Brennan and Liam O Maonlai at the Spirit Voices Show, and a string of festivals and packed out gigs across Ireland. His distinctive style of “rootsy blues” often combines rock, country and Celtic influences into the powerful mix. Over the past number of years he has support credits for Alabama 3, Paddy Casey, Mundy, Hot House Flowers, Jerry Fish, Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from Squeeze. In addition, he has collaborated with artists such as Bronagh Gallagher, Foy Fance, Duke Special, Joe Echo, and Ken Haddock, for the BBC’s Urban Hymns series.
