Martyn Wyndham Read Martyn Wyndham-Read is a gifted singer with a superb repertoire and a fund of stories.
A naturally engaging performer, his material originates from working on an Australian sheep farm as a teenager. He learned songs from the shearers and other bush workers and found on returning to England that audiences were pleased to hear his interpretations with his guitar. He has since popularised many songs from some of the greatest writers in Britain, such as Graham Miles.

Dough Eunson and Sarah Matthews Wednesday 21 October at Carrington Folk Club

Doug Eunson and Sarah Matthews have been singing in harmony and playing together for 20 years. Some readers may remember them as half of Cross o’the Hands. Doug also plays melodeon and Sarah fiddle or viola for English and European dance sides, but along the way they’ve collected some of the best English folk songs which have enhanced their repertoire.
Their third album ‘Songs and Laughter’ has just been released and emphasises how their relaxed and humorous delivery enhances their obvious writing talents.
