“I keep my mind on all the positives of music – which is the community, the singing and the joy of writing songs.”
Mark Yan regularly performs in this area, often with another popular performer you’ll hear at Fanjoy, Barry Mulcahy. As a duo they opened for the Juno nominated group ‘Dala’ in 2017 in Brampton. He is a long time member of the Brampton Folk Club.
As a dedicated songwriter, Mark's sets include his own compositions. Some of these reflect on growing up in Ontario and others are about one of his biggest loves, family.
“Music is my joy – being very influenced by so many lovely people including the singer/songwriters of the 60’s/70’s folk scene in Toronto.”
Influences: Joni Mitchell, John Prine, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young
