Martyn Joseph has been hailed as ‘The Welsh Bruce Springsteen’ and MOJO Magazine has said his brand album ‘1960’ “must count as one of his best.”
Now audiences will get the chance to hear it live when Martyn brings his UK and European tour to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Thursday 2 December, 8pm.
But with only a handful of tickets remaining audiences are urged to snap up theirs or risk missing out on an incredible night of live music.
PAC Director Janet Farmer said: “Martyn Joseph is an incredible artist, a truly unique talent who is going to blow us away when he steps onto our stage.
“He has had such an impressive career to date and his latest album is without doubt one of his best, we’ve had it playing on repeat at in the venue, so what a fantastic opportunity this will be to hear it live within the intimate setting of our auditorium.”
Hailed as “The Welsh Springsteen” Martyn was awarded a Wales Folk Award in April 2019 for “Here Come The Young”, the title track of his last studio album, and in 2018 he was honoured with a Spirit of Folk Award by Folk Alliance International in Kansas, USA.
With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums and over half a million record sales plus thousands of live performances Martyn has received the Fatea Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award in the UK.
Compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerizing live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.
Tickets for Martyn Joseph live at PAC on Thursday 2 December, 8pm are £18 each available at www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01759 301547.
