Martyn Wyndham-Read this Sunday

Martyn Wyndham-Read
Making yet another return visit to the Bothy this Sunday is Martyn Wyndham-Read. Although he was born in England, he is noted for his wide repertoire of Australian folk song, a love of which he gained when he went to work on a sheep station in Australia for quite a few years.

"He was described as a singer of Australian songs and true to his billing he gave a fine example of his vast repertoire of songs and poems of an antipodean flavour. One of the most engaging performers you're ever likely to see. His exceptionally intimate performance combined songs, humorous bush poetry recitations, stories and anecdotes of outback life and comments on Australian history and culture.

"The club was packed to greet Martyn and his two sets raced by. They included Jackaroo which recalled his early experiences in Australia, Farewell to Anzac, A Shearer's Lament and Shining down on Sennen, among many others. Great songs performed by a great singer." - Tynefolk.

He's on at the Bothy this Sunday 2 June. It starts at 8.00 p.m. at the Park Golf Club (a real ale venue), Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Click for on-line tickets.
