Folkadelphia Session: Mark Rogers & Mary Byrne
As the season aims towards the autumnal, the temperature begins dropping, and perhaps an extra layer or two is added to the outfit repertoire, Folkadelphia is proud to present our latest in-studio session featuring duo Mark Rogers & Mary Byrne, partners beyond just music-making. Nearly a year ago, Mark and Mary were kind enough to visit us at WXPN where, with their music and easy-going attitude, they brought a renewed sense of warmth, intimacy, and kindness. As we finally make available their songs, we call upon these qualities again as this year begins its twilight period.
When we tracked these performances, the two were touring in support of their (then) recently released debut album I Line My Days Along Your Weight. Along with the most notable Folkadelphia Sessions, Rogers and Byrne bring a sense of immediacy to the listener – that elusive magnetic quality that draws you away from the outer world and deep into the song. The duo’s set is like a nip of something reinvigorating and bracing against the onset of the chilly darkness of the changing season – feel it spread throughout yourself.
