Devoran Acoustic Sessions' tenth season starts next month with singer-songwriter Martyn Joseph.

The Welshman and his guitar creates a performance with a huge far-reaching sound that is energetic, compelling and passionate.

He is gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul, with his expressive and poignant lyrics and has a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances.

Martyn has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, but he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerising live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

He is a jaw-dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called “The Welsh Springsteen”.

Concerned with making music that is relevant and vital to his audience, he engages with challenging narratives tackling the complexity of the human condition, underpinned with a promise of hope.

In his own words: “Really what I do is to try and write songs that might step up and make some sense of a moment in time. A good song makes you feel like you’re not alone in the world.”

There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorise. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.

He has won the love of audiences from USA and Canada to Europe through an impressive number of live dates and has just released his 33rd studio album, produced by Gerry Diver.

Ticket to see this unmissable solo performer whose music stays with you long after the show has ended are £16.50 and available from 01872 262466/

The show is on Sunday, November 11, starting at 7.30pm at Devoran Village Hall. The audience are welcome to bring their own refreshments.
