Mark To Tour With Bob Dylan

Thursday, July 14, 2011

In a coming together of two of the greatest living songwriters, Mark and his band will be joining Bob Dylan for a series of shows around England and Europe this autumn.

Both artists will be taking a coterie of their own musicians and as usual Mark has assembled a group of players who are the best in their field. The band will consist of Richard Bennett on guitar, Guy Fletcher on keyboards, Jim Cox on piano, John McCusker on violin & cittern, Mike McGoldrick on flute, whistle & pipes, Glenn Worf on bass and Ian Thomas on drums.

Mark has taken a break from recording his next album in order to participate in what is likely to be the must see show of the year. Mark’s association with Dylan dates back to 1979 when he played on Dylan’s Slow Train Coming Sessions and then produced Bob’s acclaimed 1983 release Infidels.

Mark says, “I’m much looking forward to going out on the road with Bob in such a special year. Also, it was an honour to be asked to record one of Bob’s songs on the forthcoming Amnesty International 50th anniversary album to mark his 70th birthday”
