Mike Pennington will be the guest on the Mary K Burke Show tonight, Sunday, 20 May from 7.00pm.
Mike was born in Lancashire and began playing folk clubs in his late teens. He got a job and thought he was going to rule the world and packed in playing due to work and marriage and all the grown up stuff.
Mike moved to Scotland 12 years ago with work and lives in St Boswells in the Scottish Borders. He started playing again and in public anyway, about two years ago.
Mike’s influences includes The Dubliners and he blames them for a lot of things plus Christy Moore, Steve Earle, Pete Seeger, Woody and Arlo Guthrie.
Mike is a firm believer that as musicians we can make a difference!
