The title of John Martyn’s 1980 album, Grace and Danger encapsulates the journey of a musician who created beautiful music while forging ahead fearlessly, forever finding new ways to express the love, hurt and joy he found in life.
Demonstrating the power of his legacy in today’s music scene are a dream line-up of artists including Paul Weller, Lucy Rose, Eddi Reader, Ross Wilson, Rory Butler, Eric Bibb, John Smith and Katie Spencer who will sing the words and music of a genuine soul-poet. They will be accompanied by a band including master bass guitarist Alan Thomson, Martyn’s loyal keyboards foil, Foster Paterson and drummer Arran Ahmun, and a string section led by Greg Lawson, and of course, long-time friend and double bass titan Danny Thompson.
Ten years after his untimely passing we celebrate the genius of a musician who began as a folk-blues singer-guitarist, experimented with electronics and free jazz, embraced reggae and rock and matured into a soulful balladeer, along the way writing classics including May You Never, Couldn’t Love You More and Solid Air.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Grace & Danger: A Celebration of John Martyn are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
