MARK ORCHIN & BONNIE FLITNEY
Bonnie Flitney and Mark Orchin have been members of Sussex Folk Rock band touchstone since 1990 and are currently
about to release their 6th album. They draw their musical influences from many styles and genres of music but
primarily folk music. Mark & Bonnie have been the main songwriters for Touchstone throughout their career and their
original compositions have a unique twist as most songs are based around Sussex historical events, e.g. the Lewes
snow avalanche, shipwrecks and so on. In 1995 the pair entered the best new artist competition at the National Folk
Festival and beat all other entrants to win the contest going on to play many UK festivals both as a duo and with
Touchstone. Mark was the music teacher at Lewes Old Grammar until he retired recently and ran a successful folk band
who performed 3 times at Lewes Folk Festival - Expect a feast of Sussex flavoured songs and tunes.

Saturday Folk Club. The band was formed following a workshop on early music for folk musicians at the club led by
the wonderful New Scorpion Band.'
