Lineup and Details for Folklore on Tue 10th April 2012
"Laura J Martin just upped the ante in the lady flautist stakes. When she first came into my studio with Jonny (Euros Childs and Norman Blake) I expected her contribution to be some attractive pleasant brass flourishes. How wrong can one be? She looked like she was trying to wrestle the thing to the floor. She's no flautist - she's a FLUTE WRANGLER! Nothing short of brilliant. More Tull than Galway for sure... and she can sing like an angel and play the Mandolin too... that's why I don't like her. In fact I HATE her. I HATE LAURA J MARTIN... YOU HEAR ME!?"
"Martin was a revelation: captivating oozing talent and looking genuinely thrilled to be playing...prodigiously accomplished on the flute mandolin and piano...with a firecracker stage presence and an affable personality, her set was a showcase for an artist in bloom. Martin's future looks very bright indeed."
"Hangman Tree is a charming alt. slow-jam for a weird and lazy summer's day. Kind of like Architecture in Helsinki injected with good old-fashioned English eccentricity." Paul Rafferty, Hot Club De Paris
"From a strange planet far far away Laura J Martin travelled with her magical
voice and flute - luckily for our Earth ears she chose to make our planet
her home, sharing her fantastic cosmic sounds with us all." The Simonsound
"Watching her on stage, wielding her flute with the swiftness and precision of a warrior using a samurai sword, you cant quite believe that something so light and delicate can beat its wings so fast. But she does, and we can only stand in awe." Amelias Magazine
"She's quite brilliant trilling and looping her voice and various instruments (such as mandolin, xylophone and flute) into an intriguing, delicately layered sound that may be unique; despite clear influence from Jethro Tull and Kate Bush, Ive not seen a performer quite like her." For Folks Sake
"Telling tales of heartbreak and wonderment, this gent takes you on a journey with dark, whimsical lyrics and delicate melodies that rise and fall with a deceptive power. Andrew Butler will lead you through his world, intelligently bearing all and holding nothing back." - We Write Lists
"This fellow writes exquisite, intricate, romantic songs that swoop and soar about the place with a deceptive power" - For Folk's Sake
