Mark performs frequently in the Boston area. He has headlined on a number of occasions at Cambridge’s legendary Club Passim, and has also headlined or been featured at (among many other venues) Johnny D’s, the Burren, Tupelo Music Hall, Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, and the Center for Arts in Natick, where he hosts the bi-weekly folk open mike.  Mark has also appeared on WCVB/Channel 5’s “Chronicle” program and New England Cable News’ “Coffeehouse” program.  Among the artists he has opened for are Bill Morrissey, Steve Forbert, Buskin & Batteau, Christine Lavin, Cheryl Wheeler, Don White, Kevin So, Geoff Bartley, Claudia Schmidt, Susie Burke & David Surrette, and the James Montgomery Band.
