We are delighted to welcome back Welsh songwriter Martyn Joseph - this time in the more intimate confines of St.. James Hall. Across a 10 year cycle of albums from the Sony days of "Being There" to his recent two volume live compilation "Donít Talk About Love", Martyn's song catalogue is an awesomely impressive archive of our times, our tribulations, our wonder and our wounds.
Amongst the considerable collection of positive reviews of Martyn's recording and live work, the two regularly recurring words describing, in particular, his performances are 'passion' and 'humour'. One observer after seeing Martyn in concert likened the experience and content to "the beautiful business of being alive with all its jokes, absurdity and sadness, seared by music for the heart and head." When you encounter Martyn Joseph, you'll hear likewise.
