Nigel Mazlyn Jones is a masterful 12-string guitarist weaving a wide range of sounds, poignant songs and instrumentals with interesting tales and the kind of ecologically aware political commentary championed by his peers. Widely known on the UK music scene (including Glastonbury main stage)he has toured throughout Europe both solo and supporting well known bands like Barclay James Harvest, Renaissance and Bob Geldof.

From his folk club days through the 1970's he went on to tour most UK and European major venues supporting many well known bands. Down the years he has collaborated on projects in many genres of music yet always revered and returned to his acoustic roots, as can be heard on the latest album Raft. He is a veteran of the first wave of British acoustic warriors, a battle-hardened survivor for his art, enthused, principled and innovative. Nigel has recorded eleven albums. His first two, "Ship to Shore" and "Sentinel", have been re-released and are rightly regarded as classics of the genre.

The duo Marker is comprised of Marilyn Campbell and Kerry Manning, who are resident at the Chichester Folk Club. Marilyn has been collecting and singing the tradition since the early days of the seventies when she used to sing, along with the likes of The Watersons, Jim Eldon, et al, at The Rugby in Hull. Kerry provides the musical accompaniment, on guitar, melodeon, bodhran etc., occasionally taking lead vocals on Marker's more contemporary songs.
