A Mark Perry concert is like a Canadian roadtrip...
from playing hockey on frozen lakes or fighting the force of a rising river… to that time you were sinking on a west coast ferry or bought the family car for “two cords of wood and 24 beer”. Towns dying, towns being born, small planes going down, helicopter rescues lifting us up… this northern BC singer-songwriter draws us in as he pays tribute to real characters and events in rural Canada, connecting us from coast to coast, making the specific feel universal. He is renowned in the northwest as a candid storyteller and has a knack for making his audience feel like they’re in his living room. “New Jersey has Springsteen. New York has Billy Joel. Northern BC has Mark Perry. These are the storytellers of their time and place,” salutes music reviewer Frank Peebles. Mark’s rich vocals & guitar are accompanied by everything from accordion & violin to pedal steel & bass. With 12 albums recorded, he has a huge repertoire of music, both contemplative and lively, which he performs at festivals, in theatres and community halls. You’ll be transfixed by a dirt road ballad one minute, and cutting a rug to a river-rising frolic the next.
