Martyn Joseph
Sunday 23rd November, 7.30pm

Martyn Joseph is a performer like no other. Shades of Springsteen, Knopfler and Dave Matthews there may be - but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.



Voted Best Male Artist at the 2004 BBC Welsh Music Awards and with a string of humanitarian plaudits and awards, he’s a mean guitar player with one of the most powerful voices on the circuit crafting songs with, as the BBC’s Bob Harris put it, “outstanding lyrical intelligence”. Always charming, sometimes alarming, Martyn Joseph is a unique songwriter who digs deep and is one of the most unusual and compelling performers you are likely to encounter.

His vocal style is alluring with a deep resonance that perfectly suits his material whilst he is a superb guitar player too. A privilege to have him back so soon.
