Martin is planning a new solo album for release next March, following on from his lockdown album ‘Home Recordings’ released last year, and 2019’s ‘Rooted’. Always prolific, and never one to rest long without a guitar in his hands and a song in his head, Martin is genuinely thrilled to be back out on the road now – back where he loves to be – playing live.
One of England’s most revered folk performers, widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin’s interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His remarkable solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. Martin has been nominated an astounding 31 times in the 16 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer – and has won numerous awards.
