Prodigal Son - New CD News!!

We're really excited to announce that Martin's new CD, PRODIGAL SON, will be available this summer and we are convinced that it's is his best yet. We know, we're biased, but even so ... wait 'til you hear it! Many of Martin's good friends and favourite artists appear with him on the album, including Jackson Browne, who adds a perfect harmony vocal to Martin's beautiful version of Randy Newman's, "Louisiana 1927". Kate Rusby and Kellie While also sing sublime harmonies on two of the tracks - Kate bringing a poignant, haunting quality to Martin's song for his father, "Never Any Good", and Kellie While enriching perfectly the lovely song, "Batchelor's Hall". The instrumental back up is completely bewitching, which is understandable when you look at who is playing - Danny Thompson on bass, Andy Cutting on accordion, Alistair Anderson on concertina & Northumbrian pipes and Barry Philips on cello. Martin is delighted with the CD and will launch it at Cambridge Folk Festival with a Main Stage performance featuring Danny T and Andy C and other guests to be confirmed. The CD will be available through this website, in all good music shops and, as ever, from Martin and Terry on the road. (All UK media enquiries to: or All international media enquiries to:
