Featuring Sarah Jane Morris, Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield
British soul, jazz and R&B singer Sarah Jane Morris, Tony Rémy and Tim Cansfield interpret singer and songwriter John Martyn’s canon of music live at Chapel Arts, to pay homage to a musical maverick who influenced a generation of his peers, friends and fans alike. This touching tribute shines a light on the sublime genius of John Martyn, a restless, often self-destructive artist whose unique voice and music are both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in their beauty.
★★★★ ‘Martyn would surely have been impressed’ – The Times
★★★★ ‘An incandescent homage to John Martyn’ – Evening Standard
★★★★★ “Like spooning musical medicine into the ear” – Daily Express
“Morris’s sweeping range and soul roots warm Martyn’s sometimes bleakly tender love songs, and the wild, hard-rocking, vocally imploring finale is a tour de force” THE GUARDIAN
