I'm Sam Martyn, a folk singer, musician and artist from Hull. I'm a member of Hull folk bands Beggar's Bridge and Fiddlers Elbow, and I'm also in the White Horse Ceilidh Band. I've been a regular at the The White Horse Folk Club in Beverley for a good few years now, too.
I play piano, low and high whistle, and harmonium. Influences include June Tabor (quite simply a heroine of mine) and Eliza Carthy. In September 2012 I released my first album, Drifting on Out, while Land and Sea followed in February 2016. In late 2018 I was incredibly proud to be involved with Reg Meuross's 12 Silk Handkerchiefs song cycle. All CDs are available to buy on CD via PayPal in my website shop, or from iTunes.
