Martin Stephenson & The Daintees
At Oran Mor
Martin Stephenson is one of Britain’s best-loved musicians. As a solo artist and with his band The Daintees he has produced over 40 albums and played thousands of concerts.
His live performances are an exuberant tour-de-force, combining heart-in-your-mouth intimacy with playful humour and warm self-deprecation. He is a unique, engaging, spontaneous
and talented performer.
Martin has been in session with both Tom Robinson in London and Roddy Hart in Glasgow at the BBC Radio Quayside sessions and featured recently on the Roddy Hart show at BBC Radio Scotland. Billy Connolly came to visit and record him as part of the BBC tv documentary ‘Made in Scotland” in which he referred to Martin as ‘My kind of musician”.
“Martin’s shows are wonderful things, featuring songs old and new, stories both sad and hilarious and finger picking guitar of the very highest standard. The poet and the comedian in perfect synergy; an evening out that will gladden the heart in these times.”
