Stripped down to an acoustic guitar, harmonica, slide and vocals Martin delivers raw and soulful renditions of his repertoire as well as songs which have inspired him over the years.

He’ll be joined by veteran drummer Jorik Pienaar (Not My Dog, Albert Frost, Wisdom Of Movement) who gracefully showcases his talent on the 5-string Ukulele Bass while keeping his feet busy on the drum kit.
