Mark Hiscock was born and raised in the small community of Fort Amherst at the entrance to St. John’s harbour. Music was all around him at an early age with his father being an accomplished player himself and a musical family on both his father and mother’s side. He spent many years on a local TV show on Cable 9 called Is’e Da By’e and spent nearly 20 years on the local touring schooner Scademia. He formed the popular band Shanneyganock with his band mate Chris Andrews who are celebrating 25 years of entertaining with the band. Mark is also passing his talents along to young and old students alike, teaching accordion at music Immersion in CBS and New Wave music in Paradise. Marks latest CD “The Old Fishing Schooner” is his third solo project and is available online and in stores around NL.
