Martin is renowned as not only a marvellous satirist but also as a wonderful poet, musician, singer and author.  He regularly performs at every major folk music festival and folk venue in the country.  His appearances and performances at the prestigious National Folk Festival are legendary and he always fills the largest venues of that huge festival to overflowing. A wonderful night of sparkling comedy and great entertainment.

Martin is a strange mix of serious song, comedic parody and cabernet merlot. Not quite young enough to be up-and-coming and not quite old enough to be a legend, he will continue to describe himself as a folk-singer out of sheer bloody- mindedness, and will crash-tackle anyone who describes him as eclectic.

“Martin has the ability to take a humorous or a serious song and make it his own. He also has the ability to tell stories that engage and entrance his audience. This is the magic of any great performer. All in all a most enjoyable evening. I left feeling great.”

“Variety and wit and effortlessly polished vocal performances. Martin has the outstanding ability to engage the audience, swapping banter and taking them on a wonderfully varied trip. One moment there are members of the audience rolling in their chairs and the next, you could hear a pin drop while they’re spellbound by a simply sublime performance.”

Admission $20 and a small plate for afternoon tea.
