Stop Press. A last minute addition to his 'Trails & Tribulations' tour. We just realised that the Sheffield-based, guitar-maestro doesn't have a home town gig to launch his new album to a local public, so we've very quickly put one in the book. We're delighted that Martin has the date free and can showcase his beautiful new album to us all. We all know Martin well at Bright Phoebus and we all know that he is one of THE BEST finger-style, acoustic guitarists on the planet and that this is an opinion held by many esteemed folk the world over. As well as being a renowned solo performer, he has worked with many brilliant artists in his career, including Richard Hawley, June Tabor, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller, Richard Thompson, Kate Rusby, Martin Taylor, Cara Dillon, Bonnie Rait, Eric Bibb, Nancy Kerr, Andy Cutting and many more.

As a solo performer there are few to rival his intensity and brilliance on stage and in more recent years, his song-writing has come to the fore, winning him a coveted, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for his song about his father, 'Never Any Good'. In fact he is a multiple Folk Award winner and has been featured on many programmes including Later ... With Jools, BBC Springwatch and The BBC Proms amongst others. His new album, Trails & Tribulations focuses on his love of the natural world and features many new songs as well as some re-workings of traditional favourites. Come and see him perform in Sheffield - it will be a night to remember. Tickets £15 & £13 Doors 7pm Onstage 7:30pm Tickets via wegottickets, link below - if it's not live now, it will be very soon.

Hello again, we're delighted to announce that the hugely talented, singer, mover and shaker, Greg Russell has agreed to MC this event for us on the 13 November, which means that you'll get a couple of songs from Greg too. Never a bad thing. It's going to be a great night - the wegottickets link is now live so hurry, hurry, hurry.
