Very busy 2016 year working at my day job finishing a house and looking for a new place to live with my lovely lady Annie so have had odd gigs last year but not been so pro active. However, I have got round to re vamping and burning cd's. Also joined CD Baby who distribute music on the web and uploaded more songs to Soundcloud.  Sorting out the website and trying to keep it updated! Got a new toy of a midi keyboard for xmas so 2017 working on a new cd (going to take ages because of my day job). Ah well!

Martin has been described as a "powerful singer/songwriter of ballads and lively chorus songs

Martin has been entertaining with his songs and fine guitar   playing for 40 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, bouzouki and bohran often used in accompanying fellow musicians. In the last few years Martin has written over 40 songs, published CDs and last year released his second album  Smile At Me Again and re vamped some of his old songs into a third album called Murphy's Dance. Martin has an extensive repertoire, which includes traditional, contemporary folk, gentle ballads and his self-penned songs, which always prove popular. Martin can also perform an Irish Set if required.
