Event description

Description

Martin Harley is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation. He’s a devotee to the music that came out of the Mississippi Delta, the slide guitar, and many other forms of roots music. Though Harley’s sound is rooted in the blues it seeks to tell his own story and draws on the ruminations of a musician who has spent much of his life on the road.

The new studio album ‘Static In The Wires’ was released in 2017, it was produced by Martin & Daniel Kimbro and recorded in Nashville. It follows the critically acclaimed ‘Live At Southern Ground. A ‘Spellbinding 50 minutes’ as The Observer put it. It is Martin’s 7th album to date and the 2nd to feature Daniel Kimbro as well as 14 time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas (Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Dolly Parton), Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton, Sam Lewis) and Micah Hulsher (Alabama Shakes). The album was tracked live at Wow & Flutter Studios in East Nashville over four days. Engineered and mixed by analogue guru Joe V McMahan making use of every corner of the space. The drums sounded great in the kitchen and if you listen carefully you can hear the freight trains rolling past.

Recently Martin has headlined Music City Roots in Nashville, performed on the Cayamo Cruise with Chris Stapleton, toured coast to coast with ZZ Ward, Delta Rae and opened for Iron & Wine, Bruce Hornsby, Five for Fighting, World Party, Beth Hart, Joe Bonamassa amongst many others. His music has features on hit TV shows such as the Vampire Diaries, Banshee, America best Bars and VH1’s Morning Buzz. Last summer in Canada he and Daniel played Winnipeg, Vancouver, Canmore and Calgary Folk Music Festivals as well as shows in the Caribbean, the US and Europe.

Daniel has played the Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, Tennessee Theatre, Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, Hardly Strictly, Bluegrass, StordFest, The Kate Wolf Folk Festival, The Edmonton Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, The Blue Note Tokyo, Chateau St. Michelle, Jammin at Hippie Jacks (Jack’s) and many more.

“Harley offers the listener a masterclass in taste, style and roots blues” – *Guitarist Magazine***

“Martin is arguably the best Weissenborn player in the UK and has been for many years.” – *Weissenborn Exchange**

“No doubt that he is a slide guitar master. He is the business” – *Roots Magazine***

“Awesome” – *Johnnie Walker, BBC Radio 2***

“Quite simply a great live act” – *Time Out London*

Martin wowed audiences at his first ever Victoria performance last year (which by the way was sold out). If you saw him then you won't want to miss his upcoming show, and if this is your first time, you'd better get tickets early!
