Mark Newman at Grounds and Sounds – Friday, Nov. 9, 8:00 p.m.

MarkNewmanGrowing up in New York, Mark Newman’s musical journey has taken him around the world several times as both sideman and singer/songwriter. This ace stringsman – guitar, lap steel, mandolin, dobro – and accomplished songwriter is the type of singer whose warm and expressive voice sounds like an old friend. He put it all together on his 2006 CD Must Be A Pony. In 2010, he took a quantum leap forward with the stunning Walls Of Jericho. The CD is chockfull of intricate guitar work, mixed up front to create a synthesis of pure Americana: folksy charm, arrogant rock, hippie nostalgia and Dylanesque moments. His lyrical touch has been elevated into the realm of the profound and the universal.

Grounds and Sounds is proud to welcome Newman’s individualistic sound framed in straight-from-the-hip rock’n’roll, simmering with the subtle flavors of blues, R’n’B, funk, folk and soul. To hear some of Mark's music, click here. To buy tickets, click here.
