Event

Martyn Wyndham-Read at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Martyn Wyndham-Read has been involved with folk music for about 60 years. In his late teens he left his mothers farm in Sussex and headed off, with his guitar, to Australia where he worked on a sheep station called Emu Springs in South Australia. While there he heard, first hand, the old songs sung by some of the station hands and became captivated by these songs and the need grew to know more about them and where they came from.

Martyn headed off to Melbourne and became part of the folk song revival there and throughout Australia during the early1960s. He stayed in Australia from 1958 to 1967.

Back to England in 1967 where he met up with the renowned singer and song collector Bert Lloyd, who himself had spent time in Australia. Martyn was asked by Bert Lloyd to be part of the album Leviathan on the Topic record label and soon after that he started recording for Bill Leader and touring extensively worldwide.

In the early 1970s Martyn started the Maypoles to Mistletoe concerts which portray the seasons of the year through song, music, dance and verse and illustration. Martyn is also the instigator of the well-known Song Links Project (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Song-Links-Various-Artists/dp/B000096FNW),

In 2010 Martyn worked with Shirley Collins on a production called Down the Lawson Track featuring stories, poems/songs of the great Australian Poet of the People, Henry Lawson along with Pip Barnes, Iris Bishop, Gary Holder and Jackie Oates. In total Martyn has prodcued over 40 albums over the years.

Craig McGregor of The Canberra Times described Martyn's style, "[he] tends to sing his songs slowly, giving each line its due weight and lining the melody out with great clarity. He is helped in this by a voice which rarely wavers from the pitch; but folk singing is a subtle art, and just having a good voice is not enough... He sings English, Irish and Australian ballads with equal authority; in fact he is one of the few singers who can do justice to our bush-ranging and convict songs. His style is polished and rounded, full-blown almost, yet it escapes the theatricality which seems to creep into the work of some of our classically-trained folk singers."
