Mark Laurent and Brenda Liddiard are part of that secret army of ‘indie’ musicians who fly just below the commercial radar, playing grass-roots music in an ‘unplugged’ style.

They’ve been touring New Zealand, Australia and the UK for 20 years, and what they enjoy most is to connect with audiences on an intimate level.

They love playing acoustic clubs, small theatres, house concerts, churches – wherever people want to come close and really listen. But they can also be found jamming in a crowded cafe/bar, or filling large open spaces, like city squares or festival marquees, with the sound of guitars, mandolin, Rowan lute and harmonies.

Both Mark and Brenda are songwriters, with their own styles, so they’ve become each other’s backing band. Mark has a penchant for acoustic rock, blues and reggae, whereas Brenda’s songs lean more towards new folk and alt. country. So what you get is an eclectic mix of material, that can be ‘pin drop’ delicate, or sound like a 4-piece band! They often also pepper their shows with short bursts of poetry as well, just to keep things interesting.

In a programme packed with musical gems played and sung by a truly great line-up, it might have been hard to be a stand-out act,but believe me, the Kiwi duo of Mark Laurent & Brenda Liddiard managed to do just that.
