A folk favourite will perform in Somerset next month.

Mark Harrison will play at Street’s Strode Theatre, in Church Road, on October 26 at 7.45pm.

His new album, The Panoramic View, which features 15 songs, was released last week.

He takes elements of roots music including folk, blues and gospel, to create something unique backed up by his band consisting of Charles Benfield on double bass, Ben Welburn on drums and percussion, pianist Paddy Milner, Paul Tkachenko on brass and Ed Hopwood (harmonica).

A quirky feature of the record is the spoken introduction for each song by TV presenter Gail Porter.

Mark has appeared at festivals such as Celtic Connections, Bearded Theory and The Great British Folk Festival in recent times.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from www.strodetheatre.org.uk or on 01458 442846.
