Mushroom Musicians Presents Songwriters in the Round with Mark Bishop Evans, Andy and Judy Daigle, and Allison Rose at The Hearing Room
Mark Bishop Evans
Mark is a California Dreamer with a whole lotta soul. Mark’s music is deeply rooted in folk music and has evolved to include rock, pop, Latin and blues and has written an impressive portfolio of songs.
Mark carried a rifle and his guitar during a tour in Vietnam; Mark travelled with other musicians to entertain fellow servicemen as a collateral duty.
Back home, Mark settled in the Monterrey Peninsula and spent the next 20 years writing and performing in Central California.
In early 90’s, Mark relocated to New England where he served as a Worship leader, produced a number of CDs and performed his own music locally.
Mark has returned to his songwriting and performing roots, playing old songs, his songs and incorporating new songs into his repertoire.
