Mark Lockheart is a multi-award-winning tenor sax player who first made his name working with seminal band Loose Tubes in the eighties, and whose mastery of modern jazz has kept him at the forefront of the music ever since. Co-founder of the universally regarded “The Perfect Houseplants” Mark has toured and recorded with Django Bates, Mike Gibbs, Mark Anthony Turnage and his own 11 piece “Scratch Band” as well as Seb Rochford’s highly acclaimed “Polar Bear”.
