he showcases his incredible fingerpicking virtuosity on melodies that have a deep narrative in them – a magical listen.

after 50 years as a musician, this record sees him craft pieces of sparkling, nimble fingerstyle with an eclectic vision. As the title implies, this time Mark is focused on the austerity of the guitar, plain & simple, to bring out the music. Whether on six- or twelve-string, his sure touch is transported by crystal-clear recordings that belie their down-home origins, as they catch the contours of every string as it is pressed, bent & struck - a full-bodied sound projecting soulful dips down into bass strings & shimmering upper register runs with equal power. The air around these performances is coloured with curving waves of steel-stringed beauty & the pungency of free-wheeling wit & recollection.
