SOUNDCHECK featuring EDDIE MARTIN
Live at The Old Fire Station, Frome
Saturday 30th January 2021
A solo show from Eddie Martin, ‘The Ambassador of British Blues’
This is a live recording – please fast forward to the end of the countdown for the start of the show.
London-born Martin was weaned on a folk, electric blues and classic rock soup that left him as at home with acoustic as electric instruments and imbued him with deep respect for the music’s Afro-American roots. Touring 35 countries with 15 acclaimed original albums and a string of National and International Awards and Nominations (including Winner, Best Solo Artist category in 2018 European Blues Awards) he has become known as “The Ambassador of British Blues”.
His songs have graced TV and film soundtracks, and his live performances continue to be awe-inspiring. He is frequently broadcast on international radio, has performed many times on TV and recorded 3 sessions for BBC Radio 2, including at the famous Maida Vale Studios.
Eddie has been working on his next album which will be released in early 2021.
