1st November 2013

We are sorry to announce that this evening's gig has been cancelled as Martha has completely lost her voice. She apologises for the inconvenience and is looking forward to seeing everyone at the re scheduled date Sat 1st February 2014.

Martha Tilston is an acclaimed English singer, songwriter and guitarist. Her music combines many aspects of English and Irish folk music with more modern acoustic styles, and perceptive lyrics combining personal subjects with political, social and environmental themes.

Tilston is the daughter of acclaimed songwriter Steve Tilston and step-daughter of singer Maggie Boyle. She began writing songs at an early age. After attending drama school, she formed the band Mouse with guitarist Nick Marshall. They released two albums and played many gigs and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland.

Martha’s solo debut album Rolling was self-released in 2003, followed by Bimbling in 2004.  In 2005 she assembled The Woods, and in 2006 they released Of Milkmaids and Architects which earned her a nomination for best new act in the BBC Folk Awards.

Her album Lucy And The Wolves was released in April 2010, and she spent the remainder of that year spent playing live, including supporting Beth Nielsen Chapman on her UK dates.

Her last album Machines of Love and Grace was released in 2012.
