Mark Jones (b. 1988) is a woodwind musician and guitarist in the Merseyside region. Having graduated both his music undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Liverpool Hope University, Mark is establishing himself through regular performances/session work in popular and experimental music genres – performing locally and festivals further afield – alongside freelance teaching in the field. He is one of the few individuals in the world to have studied the unique MA: The Beatles, Popular Music and Society led by Dr. Mike Brocken. Mark assisted the radical Liverpool network Frakture (promoter of free-improvisation and experiments with sound in the north-west area) for several years whilst also being a music consultant for the Arts Council England funded cross-arts project ‘If Only…!‘ based then at the famous Bluecoat, central Liverpool. He has lovingly performed in blues, classical, folk, jazz and world orientated groups since 1998 on multiple instruments, consistently striving performances to happen more in the north-west region primarily given its rich, musical history and local importance.
In recent times Jones has taken parts up on flute(s) for the ‘Are You Here?’ event arranged by Brighter Sound at Band on The Wall (Manchester) and appeared too at Tate Liverpool for the American historical play entitled ‘O.K. – The Musical’ by Christopher Kline alongside performing in the Jazz Flute Big Band with top local, notable and international flutists during 2017.
