Blues and Roots music at Winchester Discovery Centre

Martin Harley is a supremely talented Roots and Blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation. He is a devotee to the music that came out of the Mississippi Delta, the slide guitar, and many other forms of roots music. Though Harley's sound is rooted in the blues it seeks to tell his own story and draws on the ruminations of a musician who has spent much of his life on the road. Martin Harley's British Americana sound is influenced by Delta Blues and Gyspy Swing. Renowned for his prowess as a slide guitarist, Martin is almost unique in the UK in his playing lap slide. During constant worldwide touring he has honed his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today, the result is a road worn style of song writing that Guitarist Magazine describes as "staggeringly good, no one is making music like it" .

Martin's latest album "LIVE AT SOUTHERN GROUND" - recorded at the famous Southern Ground Studios in Nashville Tennessee - was described by The Observer as "A spellbinding 50 minutes"
