For 35 years Martyn Joseph has been writing and performing his relevant and vital music across the globe. Take everything you think you know about singer songwriters and rip it up. He has created his own style as a mesmerising live performer and has built a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives. A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, he’s a jaw dropping guitar player with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music, poetry and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are photographs, stories and feelings enveloped in melody and delivered by a master craftsman.With twenty studio albums, thousands of shows under his belt, and a plethora of awards and plaudits Martyn is very much on top of his game and after many requests through the years has decided to give two master classes this summer.

There will also be an informal concert in the evening.The day will be an invaluable inspiration to long time musicians and writers or anyone just beginning a musical journey.Participants should feel free to bring their instruments with them, although this is not essential.Doors open at 10.45am, with the event starting at 11am, with a break for lunch and evening meal (Food not included), and will finish at approx 10.30pm.
