Accompanying himself on guitar, bouzouki, mandolin and bass, Martyn’s pure tenor and three octave range combine with his multi-instrumental talent to produce a truly unique folk instrument, bringing new life to material which is often hundreds of years old. His ability to engage audiences with personal stories and anecdotes about the songs leaves listeners feeling that they have witnessed a very special musical performance by a uniquely talented artist.
Martyn’s new album - Learning From The Leaves - features both traditional and original songs, in addition to songs written by contemporary British and Irish folk artists. Martyn is accompanied on several tracks by fellow renaissance faire musicians The Harper and The Minstrel (Jay and Abby Michaels) and his Celtic Mayhem colleagues, Ty Billings and Jack Stamates, but played many of the instruments and sang harmony vocals himself.
Matyn Wylde performs solo at folk and acoustic music venues, renaissance, Celtic and folk festivals and plays bass with the award winning musical group Celtic Mayhem.
