Dublin-native Mark Geary is a celebrated musician who began his career more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years honing his craft playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley.  During that time, Mark’s songwriting skills and engaging live performances garnered him a dedicated audience, the respect and esteem of his peers, and a reputation as one of the finest songsmiths of his generation.

Mark is described as a “quintessential singer-songwriter” and his records have been hailed as encapsulating both boisterous joy and gentle, delicate moments that endear themselves to the listener and evoke comparisons to artists such as Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliot Smith and Richard Thompson.  His body of work includes 4 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations with a number of artists including the 2013 release of a charity version of his song ‘Christmas Biscuits’ with friend Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul, in Ireland.

Mark has also lent his talents to the visual arts scoring several films including “Loggerheads” (2005), “Steel City” (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival favourite, “Sons of Perdition” (2010) as well as having songs featured in episodes of the TV shows “Bones” and “One Tree Hill”.  Mark is accompanied by Ruth O’Mahoney, Eamonn DeBarra and Sean Regan.  Dandelion
