Mark Foley has been creating original satire and song projects for three decades in New York City and the Hudson River Valley. His work has been aired on WBAI-FM, MTV Networks and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. He has performed at the Nuyorican Poets Café, the Knitting Factory, the NYC Half-Marathon Fest, The Lincoln Square Winters Eve Fest, The Summer on The Hudson concert series, the Westchester Arts Council Artbash, the Clearwater Festival(live radio), the Governors Island Family Day and before the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Civic initiatives include VolunteerMusic, producing hundreds of street ‘happening’ and free civic concerts, and Song Project, which focuses on community land use causes.  Local conservation, preservation and civic partners have included the Kingston Land Trust, Landmark West, and The Governors Island Alliance. Song projects for local and regional interest include the Rondout District in Kingston, Kingston’s African-American burial grounds, The Bluestone Wild Forest, The Wilbur Upland Preserve, The City of Beacon, The Fishkill Supply Depot, New York’s Upper West Side, Governors Island, and ‘Seneca Village'(Central Park).

Mark’s performance ‘kit’ can include 6 and 12-string guitars, his special ‘double’ harmonica array, and, on occasion, foot percussion, spoons, and assorted bells and whistles. The act was developed on the streets, subways, and parks of NYC.

This program will feature social satire, peace & justice, local conservation/preservation, and romance.
