Mark Gamon is an (approximately) Cambridge-based musician and writer, with a growing reputation as a songwriter who combines intriguing stories with memorable melodies. An adept fingerstyle guitarist, he works in a combination of styles – folk, blues and country – and doesn’t really give a hoot for where the traditions overlap. He can also occasionally be heard wielding a mandolin.
Mark’s 2012 solo album, Layer, was described by Music Maker magazine as ‘a varied and inventive story-telling concept that manages to succeed while flying in the face of stylistic convention’ (more reviews HERE).
Mark performs solo and with various musical compadres including Lizzie J Taylor, Nick Blishen, David Hardie, Matti Stenroos, John Meed, Ben Smith and the band Sky West. In recent months he has supported Dave Swarbrick, Drew Nelson, Bob Fox, Alan Reid and Rob van Sante, Phil Underwood, and Two Coats Colder.
