"Martin has been entertaining with his songs and fine guitar playing for 35 years on the West Yorkshire folk scene. He began his musical interest as a teenager by first learning the harmonica before progressing to the acoustic guitar. Through the years this has led him to master the mandolin, tenor banjo and bohran often used in accompanying fellow musicians. In the last few years Martin has written 23 songs, published two CDs and is working on his third. Martin has an extensive repertoire, which includes lively Irish, contemporary folk, gentle ballads and his self-penned songs, which always prove popular."

"Although very well established in America, house concerts are a relatively new concept here in the U.K. They offer a chance to see great artists who are often only over in the country for a very short time. Without all the complications of agents, managers, p.a. and hall hire, it means that we can work at pretty short notice.
A House Concert is a private party for which you are sent a personal invite and is not a public music venue.
All donations are madebefore the show and people are not able to just turn up uninvited."
