COLE & WARD: Mark Cole’s powerful, passionate vocals and honest uncluttered slide and rhythm guitar (plus a little mandolin and other found objects) make it hard not to enjoy his musical creations. He has played with and supported many top blues and roots artists including Pinetop Perkins, Dr. Feelgood, Richard Thompson and Alvin Lee.
Cole’s songwriting is instantly recognisable: quirky, funny and yet capable of poignance too. Combined with Liam Ward’s emotionally charged harmonica and his own songwriting talents, a set from these two takes a “pass-the-parcel” approach with each given a chance to share their own styles. If you ask for an encore, you might even hear a harp duel between the two of them!
