MARTIN HUGILL
Renowned British Singer of Folk and Sea Songs
Son of the Legendary Shantyman Stan Hugill

Martin Hugill was brought up with shanties and sea songs from an early age, being the youngest son of the late Stan Hugill, last of the shantymen.

He has sung with some legendary performers in the United Kingdom, including Tony Davis's "Shipmates," and with the Celtic music band "Sam." He often performs with his brother Phil Hugill, and has earned acclaim at festivals in Poland, Germany, France and the United States.

Martin usually accompanies himself on cittern guitar or on mandolin. He has recently begun to add the sea songs of Wales, his native country, to his repertoire. When not singing songs of the sea, he performs in a ceilidh band around the borders of England and Wales.

His father, Stan Hugill, was one of the most important collectors of the working songs of deepwater mariners under sail. He was the last man to sing a working shanty aboard a British square-rigged merchant ship, in 1929. His principal work, Shanties from the Seven Seas, was published in 1961. It has become the "bible" of modern shanty singers around the world.

Martin Hugill currently lives in Shropshire, England.

Time to refresh this. Good show if you're going to be in the vicinity after the Songs Of Sail 2001 Festival in Kennebunk, ME on Saturday -- or a place to see and hear Martin if you can't get to the festival.

Wish I could be there, BG. I've got a soggy outdoor performance of my own planned! I'll never forget seeing Stan himself at Mystic in 1986 or 7.

Well, I'll be there! Hope to see some of you. I also hope Martin brings his father's book so I can finally buy it!

Hello Martin, your parents were part of my life, was born into Outward Bound in Aberdovey in 1954. They were close friends my dad being O.B seamanship instructor learned so much from your dad, I have some pics from that time, went to visit then in the 80's your mum opened the door and recognised me immediately, 30yrs on. We must have been childhood friends, you and your brother, good to know you are continuing the tradition, do you also climb the masts !!

Linda, you've stumbled into an old thread from 2001, and I doubt Martin Hugill will see your message. It seems you can contact Martin through his group, "Star of the Sea" on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Star-of-the-Sea-102217866488879/timeline/

Good luck making contact!
Maeve
