Marc's new album, Brisk & Breezy, sees him revisit the “jaunty acoustipop” of his former band, Marc Block and the Breezes, overdubbing his own voice, guitar, bouzouki, harmonicas and percussion, with further backing vocals by Rachel Delicata and double bass by Martin Bentley. It’s an exuberant collection of mostly original songs, including new recordings of some of Marc’s old favourites from his younger days.
A traditional Cornish song about Maying. I rewrote the verses because they didn't make any sense to me. I realise that the rewriting of traditional songs upsets some people, but I firmly believe that folk songs belong to all of us, the folk, thus any of us can do what we like with them.
