|Marck's Music Making|
I've always had a passion for music and things musical. I
learnt to play piano from age 6 (lapsed) and guitar from age 7
(still playing!). I wrote my first song aged 11 (it was rubbish,
but what do you expect?).
After moving to Somerset in 1981, I sought a musical soul-mate to replace the relationship I had enjoyed in London with Steve Fletcher (half of Bardo - the UK 1983 Euro-Song entry, keyboard player for the late / great Penguin Cafe Orchestra). This search remained in vain until, at the end of 1996, I met Mark Westlake while working on music for a Broadway Amateur Theatre Society production. I was MD, he played guitar.
Early in January 1997, once the show was over, Mark and I sat down in my little studio / office (the cupboard under the stairs at Silverstones, my then Ilminster home) and penned our first co-written song ... the first of many.
In January 1997 we formed a band which we decided to call H.T. Fib.
Please visit the HTFib web site if you want to know more.
Since 2005, I have been playing harmonica, quitar, vocals and
percussion with a very talented poet called Marie Stanbury
(aka Mar ni Chrehan).
