GIFTED songwriter Martyn Joseph will be appearing in Crawfordjohn on Friday evening.

Martyn, whose career has spanned three decades, will be entertaining locals this Friday and with an extensive back catalogue which includes 31 albums Martyn is definitely not short of material.

Folk, rock, soul, funk and Americana are some of the genres that Martyn’s work dips into.

Bruce Springsteen is one of Martyn’s biggest influences; indeed he recently released Tyres Rushing By in the Rain, which is an album of covers of the American legend’s work.

As well as the usual Springsteen classics there are a couple of hidden gems on the album as well so fans of “The Boss” will be in for a real treat.
