Plays songs from the forest - Mark Geary

Plays songs from the forest - Mark Geary

Thursday, 25 February 2021, 9.00pm

Irish singer-songwriter Mark Geary will be singing his beautifully crafted songs from his little woodland cottage in Co. Kildare. He will be taking requests for songs from his 5 studio albums as well as playing some new songs that he's still working on.

Mark has released five studio and three live albums. Interchanging between his beloved vintage Martin, Gibson, Spanish and electric guitars, Geary’s sound is stripped back. He treats his songs with trade-mark Geary honesty. His voice might be drenched in Irish honey, but his lyrics slice right through to the core revealing a life laid bare of human emotional frailty, failed relationships, tenderness, hurt, making amends, desire and parting.

Mark’s current single Spectre released in December 2020 is beautiful, dark and haunting and features deftly interwoven layers of acoustic guitars. It was written during a time of intense, unbroken reflection, surrounded by nature. Mark says: “I'm writing and singing differently to my other songs, this comes from a place of understanding and forgiveness. It’s about loss, grief, desire, ancient stuff. I’m just so immersed in the creativity of what it is that I do.”

Mark is working on songs for his next studio album, surrounded by six guitars and his more recent purchase, a piano.
