Tickets £8, 12 - 18yrs £5, Family £25 available from

Emma and The Professor have been performing
together on the folk circuit for 10 years, appearing at
virtually all the UK's major folk festivals & supporting
artists such as Show of Hands, John Renbourn, Vin
Garbutt, Hazel O'Connor & Jacqui McShee.
Emma has worked with Benji Kirkpatrick ('Bellowhead &
'Faustus') with his first band, 'The Hedgerows' &
featured on their first album, 'Evolving Tradition'.
Mark has recorded for Miles Hunt ('The Wonder Stuff')
on his album with Erica Knockalls 'Catching More Than We Miss'. He has also performed with Mark
Chadwick ('The Levellers') who said,
“I don’t normally like the bodhran...but you’re extraordinary!”
As well as being skilled songwriters with an eye on the present & an understanding of the past,
Emma & Mark are superb musicians. Emma's guitar playing is full & rhythmic & her singing voice is
thoroughly unique & simply stunning. Imagine the ethereal meandering style of Joni Mictchell
combined with the visceral blues/soul of Aretha Franklin & the clarity of Jefferson Airplane's Grace
Slick!! The variety of rhythms that Mark produces on the bodhran (Irish drum) & the cajon (box hand-
percussion) are endless & infectious.
Their closeness as musicians & unique chemistry can’t help but 'draw you into' their lively & animated
performances and their songs radiate with the energy that lies within the ancient lands of the Welsh
Marches. Here are tales of sorrow, loss, hope and love all delivered with deep passion and soul.
