QUOTES:

‘Mark T. has his own unique way of presenting original music

that spans English Folk, American Blues and Greek Rembetika, and it’s very cool!

Mark is a fine singer and guitarist with his own style which shines through,

especially when he sings and plays slide on his National guitar’- Michael Messer - 2018

An original voice - The Guardian

‘Fiery bouzouki and neat blues slide, topped by T.’s distinctive, clear, English vocals and a good choice of songs’ - fRoots.

 

‘Blues to Rembetika’ is a wonderful testament to his free spirit and joi de vivre’ - RnR (RocknReel)

 

'From Blues To Rembetika' is a very interesting album that opens the gate wide to other cultures and gives you the feeling that blues and roots music are indeed captured from one big barrel’. - Rootstime (Belgium)

 

Mark’s approach to the blues is pretty authentic – that’s a National Triolian on the cover – but I’m not expert enough to judge his Rembetika. I just know I enjoy it. - Dai Jeffries, Folking.com

 

Why haven't I heard of you before? - Reg Presley (Troggs)

 

I enjoyed the blues, but I must confess I liked the Rembetika even more.

- Gail Holst author of  ‘Road to Rembetika’
