Marc Block with Simon Dumpleton 8.30 pm Wednesday 17 July 2019

Marc shared a guest spot at our club in January 2017 with Tina Taylor. At that time he was making regular solo appearances on the Nottingham folk and roots scene and also fronting a Trio called ‘The Breezes’. He has recently described himself as a “rootsy Radical Faerie singer of original and traditional songs in the folk idiom”. For about 5 years Marc was regular driver and accompanist to Roy Bailey up to Roy’s death last November, but since then has a new collaboration with a “wizard accordionist” called Simon Dumpleton from South Yorkshire. Marc has a lot of new material to perform, since he is close to completing a crowd-funder for his third album, following ‘Brisk & Breezy’ in 2016 and ‘The Hawthorn Spring’ in 2013. Wednesday 17 July should be a brilliant night!
