Where Are You Going?

 

Where Are You Going? is a lyrical set of original songs + four traditional songs from Mark T.

Many of you will remember Mark as leader of The Brickbats an esoteric roots band from the eighties and early ninetees who released three influential albums of global music to critical acclaim in the arts and roots press.

With this collection Mark returns closer to home will a linked collection of songs which constantly move backwards and forwards in time between his teens in 1970's Hereford to today.

The folk, blues and world music influences are still there but have been woven into a seamless contemporary sound which defies easy classification but takes you to worlds you may have forgotten existed.
