Cindy Stratton and Marius Frank are well-known West Country-based professional musicians.
Cindy began a career in music in the late eighties, rapidly establishing herself as a singer-songwriter. Success in a Radio 1 competition led to radio and TV appearances, as well as supporting Phil Collins, Jules Holland, Labi Siffre, John Martyn and many others. Five album releases later, Cindy is still writing great songs, and singing to packed houses: www.cindystratton.com
Marius has combined a career in education with one in music. Son of an opera singer (his father was the one who ate the monkey brains in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!), Marius burst onto the Bristol scene with his amazing world music/jazz fusion band “Taboola Rasa” (in 1989, they closed the Bath International Festival). Marius is still sought after for his arranging and composing skills, working closely with Cindy, Sassparella, and his producer/recording engineer Marcellus Fernandes, as part of the Dharma Sound Lab project scip5.net
Dear Cindy and Marcus,
My name is Karen Thomson and I am a member of Lemon Tuesday choir in Hertfordshire. We are taking part in the MSF this year but our pianist is suddenly unable to come.I wondered if you knew of anyone locally who might be able to do the honours?It’s only for 2 songs and obviously we would pay them.
Many thanks,Karen Thomson
