Martyn Wyndham-Read has been involved with folk music for over forty years. In his late teens he left his mother's farm in Sussex and headed off, with his guitar, to Australia where he worked on a sheep station Emu Springs in South Australia. It was while he was there that he heard, first hand, the old songs sung by some of the station hands at Emu Springs and he became captivated by these songs and the need to know more of them and where they came from grew.

He headed off to Melbourne and became part of the folk song revival there and throughout Australia during the early1960's..

Back to England in 1967 where he met up with the renowned singer and song collector Bert Lloyd, who himself had spent time in Australia. Martyn was asked by Bert Lloyd to be part of the album 'Leviathan' on the Topic label and soon after he started recording for Bill Leader and touring extensively worldwide.

In the early 1970's Martyn started the 'Maypoles to Mistletoe' concerts which portray the seasons of the year through song, music, dance and verse and illustration. Martyn is also the instigator of the well known Song Links Project,

Martyn is currently working with Shirley Collins on a production called 'Down the Lawson Track' featuring stories, poems/songs of the great Australian Poet of the People, Henry Lawson with Pip Barnes, Iris Bishop, Gary Holder and Jackie Oates.

His CD Jackeroo portrays his life so far through songs both old and new.

I had a chance to see Martyn about ten years ago in Pennsylvania. I think he is vastly underappreciated. His Fellside recording, Mussels on a Tree is a classic by me. His voice does not have the widest range, but most of his songs fit quite well and ring authentic.

I love Martyn's music too. I also have a few of his (from an old audiocassette in TSO's collection) in my to learn book. I've been kicking myself since I missed the Eric Bogel and Martyn Wyndham-Read UK concert last year. Sigh.

Hope you get a full house SINS.

Thanks for providing information about the earlier alternative date. It's certainly something to consider for those in the Greater Wiscasset area.

I wish we could be there. You'll all have a brilliant time.

Martyn has been my main folk hero for decades now and I get to see him whenever possible. Not only an excellent performer but an all-round good egg too.

Get him to sing Sailor's Return.

One of my proudest folk moments ever was singing in his house concert out in France. I sang Sailor's Return to Martyn's guiltar and Bill Whaley on squeezebox and Dave Fletcher on low D whistle. The memory will live on forever.

The Camden concert is at Camden Public Library; My friend Ken coordinates wonderful concerts/coffeehouses/songwriting workshops there. Quoting from the press release in my email box: "The next Library Coffeehouse, on Thursday, April 1, 7:00-9:00 pm, will feature well-known folk musician and Australian song expert Martyn Wyndham-Read. Gordon Bok has offered to do an opening set as well! Admission will be $7. " http://www.librarycamden.org/

Sins & Jacqui- regarding the proposed trip and concert: Best that you contact me via PM or email. It's a delightful possibility for me, at least.

Martyn and Iris Bishop did a wonderful evening at Faldingworth Live recently.

Martyn is an Icon and a very nice bloke as well.

First saw Martyn in 1969/70 and he has remained a firm favourite of mine. Go see him.

If he is playing near you (South Portland, Maine, for example) get thee to the concert.

You might ask also for 'The Outside Track', which I've heard MW-R sing in concerts. A very moving old Aussie poem set to a lovely tune, and with a fine chorus. Suits Martyn's warm, gentle style perfectly. Another great version is by Nancy Kerr & James Fagan.

You'll have a lovely evening with Martyn, wish I could be there but it's a long round-trip from The Backwoods to Maine!

So far we haven't had a very good response to this concert - I hate the idea that we can't pull in a good sized audience for Martyn - he is such a good performer and I know that those who attend will have a great evening. Trust me, I've seen him twice on this tour and was spellbound both times.

Any more takers?
