MARTYN JOSEPH

supported by Luke Jackson

Martyn Joseph is a performer like no other. Shades of Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be - but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives. Always charming, sometimes alarming, he is a unique songwriter who digs deep and delivers an ultimate, life affirming message.

This Welsh singer songwriter has been in demand on both sides of the Atlantic for over two decades. He has won fans everywhere with his uncanny fusion of material - feisty, pull no punches big issue numbers alongside stripped bare love songs. Martyn's 31st album Under Lemonade Skies released in October 2011 was enthusiastically described by Radio 2's Bob Harris as "his biggest album to date".

"Britain`s best kept secret... a challenging songwriter and a compelling courageous live performer"- MoJo 4* review

"One of the most charismatic and electrifying performers in Britain today... tough and passionate" - Tom Robinson BBC 6 music

Support comes from BBC Folk Awards 2013 double nominee Luke Jackson, a feted, fast-rising 18 year-old singer songwriter.
