Basic Folk 12 – Mark Dignam


This week we have Irish singer/songwriter Mark Dignam on the podcast. Mark grew up in the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland. It was in Dublin where he gained his experience as a performer by busking around town with well-known folk singer, Glen Hansard. Dignam brought his love of music to Pittsburgh, PA where he continues to write and perform.

In our conversation, we discuss the Catholic Church, growing up with a disability, and the transcendent release he feels when performing on stage. I hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Basic Folk. Don’t forget to subscribe!
