About this Act

The Marnie band are based in the West Country. They bring another dimension to their raw, pure, heartfelt music with spine tingling vocals, driving guitars, mandolin, foot stomper and an adept use of live loops.

They have a great mix of engaging and uplifting original songs filled with energy and soul, along with impressive covers to suit all tastes by Stevie Wonder, Florence & the Machine, Caro Emerald, Nancy Sinatra, K.T. Tunstall, Massive Attack, Guns & Roses, Ray Charles...

Marnie's experience and versatility enables them to tailor their performance to the audience's needs. They can perform beautiful, mellow, background music or they can really get the party going with their upbeat, lively, full band sound.

They use high quality equipment, providing sound levels and lighting that suit the environment in which they play.
