"The form becomes one with the content, and that's where the power lies." — Mark Turnbull
Mark Turnbull has had a long and fruitful career in music and theater. When he was 17 he signed with Reprise Records with his recording, “Portrait of the Young Artist.” His music has been described as folk-jazz, which he depicts as “a cross between Burl Ives and Thelonious Monk.” Last fall Mark played Dog Kelly in his own musical, “Tales of Fannie Kennan Better Known as Dora Hand,” at the Oregon Stage Works.
EH: You’ve spent almost your entire life in music and theater. Is there any time that you did anything else?
MT: There were two years when I was seven and eight, when I was in little league. I put down the ukulele for two years.
