Mark Gamon

One of the best kept secrets in British folk songwriting

Mark Gamon is a British singer, guitarist and songwriter who doesn’t give a hoot for any distinctions between folk,blues, country and jazz. He performs solo, in duo with long time compadre Nick Blishen, and as one quarter of the awesome Thursday’s Band.

He’s had a guitar in his hand since the age of twelve, and claims to be just about getting the hang of it - but for him (a lifelong writer) it’s all about the songs.

Mark has performed occasionally with Sky West, Daniel Nestlerode, Lizzie J Taylor, Ben Smith, John Meed, the late David Hardie, and Matti Stenroos. He’s also part of the team at Royston Folk Club, looking after the legendary Royston Showcases.
