RR&R welcomes Margo Hennebach & Mark Saunders
Margo Hennebach and Mark Saunders combine award winning songs, highly evolved musicianship and a playful but commanding presence on stage to make them a favorite of critics and audiences alike. While their music is prayer-like at times, Margo and Mark are also true entertainers, having performed for years in venues all over the country including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the acclaimed Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN, and a long list of concert halls and coffeehouses and tiny house concerts.
Hennebach developed her craft while living in Hoboken and backing up several artists on the New York Fast Folk scene including Richard Shindell, John Gorka, Shawn Colvin, and Rod Mac Donald. Mark Saunders has a degree in Classical Guitar from the Hartford Conservatory, but then cut his teeth on R&B music. He brings an edge to Margo’s playing that can only be described as electrifying. Together they perform almost single-mindedly, moving deftly from heartfelt ballad to Celtic anthem. They can be heard combining Celtic, gospel, pop and folk influences in Margo’s fourth release on Prime CD, “Big Love,” which The Cleveland Free Times a “seamless project that wonderfully succeeds in offering inspiration, appreciation, hope and faith.”
