About this Event

Martyn Joseph is a performner like no other...

He's a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, with a powerful show stopping voice and a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorise. Many have tried, resulting in labels such as Folk, Rock, Soul, Folk Funk and Americana; all of which somehow miss the mark. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.

2016 was one of Martyn’s busiest, and this was acknowledged by him being nominated in the Hardest Working Artist category at the UK Independent Music Awards, being the only folk artist to receive any nomination. Playing over 170 shows worldwide he was also part of the Parliament/EFDSS project, Sweet Liberties, marking 800 years of British democracy, with Nancy Kerr, Sam Carter and Maz O’Connor.

Martyn Joseph. A unique talent driven by passion and love for his trade, continues to write, sing and play from the heart.

"Stunning, heartfelt music"
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

"Intelligent and enlightened songs are both energising and provocative…from subtle tenderness to growly indignation. A Welsh national treasure" MOJO
