Blending distinctive voices and guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle and electric bass, their music is enthusiastically received by audiences in the USA and Canada . Their music echoes inspiration from traditional folk duos like Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf and Neil Young – combining beautiful harmonies and a lyrical intensity, while establishing a unique sound of their own. “Mark & Raianne’s new album “Grain by Grain,” was one of last year’s most compelling musical offerings, an exquisitely constructed collection rife with feeling and skilled musicianship.” -Victor D. Infante, Telegram & Gazette, Apr 2017.
