Martin's Only Solo, Sheffield Gig This Year Is Fundraiser For Local School

Martin's only solo date in his hometown of Sheffield this year, will be a fundraiser for the local school on Thursday 24 May. High Storrs School in Sheffield is facing cuts to it's courses, as are many schools throughout the country. To help the local school continue to offer it's fantastically diverse range of subjects that pupils can study at GCSE and A Level, Martin has agreed to appear in aid of it's drive to help keep Classics on it's syllabus, as it is a particular favourite of family members.
Martin says, "My child, my wife and my in-laws are all huge fans of the subject and we all agree that is one of those that can capture the imaginations of children of all ages and develop not only a love of the stories, but also of history and the arts. I'm happy to help the school keep Classics on their syllabus, I only wish it wasn't necessary to fund raise to keep options open for all children to have an enriching and broad education. I'm looking forward to the gig and hope that people will come along in support who don't necessarily think they like folk music and who may be happily surprised!"
