About The Event
Martin's songs range from raucous sea shanties to atmospheric ballads and while the lyrics are distinctly 'old style' lyric-wise, the instrumentation is contemporary. Drawing upon local myths and legends, the repertoire includes an epic ode to the Romney Marsh and the story of the Rye Lifeboat tragedy of 1928.
The songs might hark back to the past, but with themes of love, death, sex, murder and longing they are as relevant as ever to modern life.
Another free music Thursday awaits, book a table, or just rock up on the night! We hope to see you there.
