Martin Joins The Boardwalk All Stars For Another Bright Phoebus Four Hour Festival

6 Sept sees Martin return to Sheffield's Boardwalk for another Bright Phoebus spectacular. This evening will feature the stunning vocals of Chris & Kellie While, Kellie being familiar to many of you as an occasional and brilliant back up singer with Martin over the past few years. The mother and daughter combination of Chris & Kellie delights with superb harmonies from these world class singers, who between them work with Martin, Julie Matthews, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Eddi Reader, Fairport Convention and Ashley Hutchings' Albion Band, to name but a few. Martin will be performing with the wonderful, shape-shifting Boardwalk All Stars support band - this month featuring Jon Boden, Will Pound, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Roy Bailey, Sam Sweeney and more. There will also be two new EFDSS sponsored, Folk Rising showcase spots from The Fay Hield Trio (who has been known to sing with Martin's band recently!) and Sam Carter, a great singer-songwriter who studied guitar with Martin and who won this year's BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award at the Folk Awards in February. All this for less than £10 if you buy in advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/88605
Great raffle prizes too!
