There is no one in music quite like Mark Harrison. He is widely considered one of the most original and interesting artists around. His highly individual, all-original music has taken him and his band to some of the top venues and festivals in the UK, attracting acclaim wherever they go. Recent appearances on BBC Radio 2, as guest on Cerys Matthews's show and on the Pick Of The Week show, have further added to his growing reputation.

Described at BBC Radio 2 as 'quirky' and an artist who 'makes you think afresh', Mark is a totally original songwriter, a stunning guitarist, and a master storyteller. Mark's live shows are well-known not only for the music but also for his introductions and explanations of the songs, delivered in a manner often described as 'wry' and 'dry'.

With his unique and acclaimed rhythm section, Mark is known on the blues scene as someone who is doing something different with blues music. He was nominated in the 2021 UK Blues Awards and was recently on the cover of Blues in Britain.

Mark is a songster, and his songs cover all manner of non-standard subjects. With catchy tunes, lyrics than intrigue and engage, and striking rhythms, they make you smile, think and move.
​​​​
​​​​​​A thrilling, rhythmic, finger-picker and slide player, with a very distinctive style, Mark tours extensively with the band. He has released six albums which have been unanimously acclaimed across a wide range of areas of the music world, receiving a very great deal of airplay and highly enthusiastic reviews in the UK, Europe and the US. 2021 sees the release of Mark's much awaited new album, THE ROAD TO LIBERTY.

A totally original songwriter, a stunning guitarist, and a master storyteller. "A bit different and kinda groovy too" - Cerys Matthews

"The more I listen to Mark Harrison, the more I admire the man. He's a fantastic musician, he's got a great voice and what a songwriter! He's kind of reinvented the blues in this country. What a glorious sound he makes" – Frank Hennessey, BBC Radio 2

"He takes very real things that happen in life and makes you think afresh about them" – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
