If success can be measured by a growing global demand to attend Martin’s dynamic live performances, then perhaps his touring schedule is proof of that. He recently played to a full house at the Union Chapel in Islington and has appeared at Edmonton, Vancouver, Canmore and Calgary folk festivals in Canada, Glastonbury, Bestival, Beautiful days in the UK, and numerous European and US tours and events including the AMAs, The Bluebird in Nashville and Tønder in Denmark.
In 2018, Total guitar ranked him #16 in the world’s greatest acoustic guitarist poll and he was nominated as Instrumentalist of the year at the Americana music awards.
If you’re planning on coming to an event at the Barrel House Ballroom, please take a moment to familiarise yourself with useful information about visiting the venue, such as how to get here, our facilities, access at the venue and what’s on offer for visitors to Totnes.
