Mark Geary makes a highly anticipated visit in support of fifth studio album The Fool which will be released on 20 October. It’s the Dublin native’s first appearance in Belfast in several years.
In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years honing his craft playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the renowned Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley.
During that time, Mark’s songwriting skills and engaging live performances garnered him a dedicated audience, the respect and esteem of his peers, and a reputation as one of the finest song-smiths of his generation.
Over the last 20 years Mark has toured all over Europe, the US and Australia, and has shared the stage with performers such as The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders and Joe Strummer
