MARTYN JOSEPH IN CONCERT

Southwold Arts Centre, Southwold, IP18 6JP
Fri 17th January 2020 7:30PM
“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

“One of acoustic music’s most original voices, and most forward looking of his generation of singer/songwriters”Q Magazine

MARTYN JOSEPH is a unique and mind blowing artist. Take everything you think you know about singer songwriters….and rip it up. For one man and a guitar he creates a performance with a huge far-reaching sound that isenergetic, compellingandpassionate.

April 2019 saw him win a “Wales Folk Award” for “Here Come The Young”, the title track of his most recent album, of which Uncut magazine said “He’s never sounded more potent than he does here.”

In 2018 Martyn was honoured with the ”Spirit of Folk” Award by Folk Alliance International in Kansas USA and he also received Fatea magazine’s “Lifetime Achievement Award” here in the UK.

He is gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics and has a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances.

Often compared to Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerizing live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what many have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, he's a jaw-dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed with a powerful show stopping voice.

He is hailed as a raconteur weaving tales on topical concerns, as well as stories on the fragility of love, with a magical ability to reach out to his listeners through his passion and humour. Stunning reviews single him out as an unmissable solo performer whose music stays with you long after the show has ended.
