Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
MARTHA TILSTON has built a large captive audience with her astute lyrical observations and mesmerising songs, that range from stripped down acoustic arrangements to textural electronica, with sparkling melodies and crystal-clear vocals.

Martha grew up immersed in music. Her singer/songwriter father Steve Tilston and renowned folk singer Maggie Boyle (step-mother) were obvious influences and Musicians of the 70s folk-revival such as Bert Jansch, John Rebourn and John Martin would often gather and sing in her kitchen.
 
Tilston began her musical tenure in folk duo Mouse, often sharing stages with the likes of Kate Tempest and Damien Rice amongst others. Her subsequent musical journey has taken her from the acoustic stage at Glastonbury to touring the far reaches of the globe. She has also earned a nomination for Best Newcomer at the BBC Folk Awards while releasing six albums and featuring on the Zero 7 album Yeah Ghost

In 2014 her highly acclaimed folk album The Sea was named by BBC 6 Music's Cerys Matthews as her album of the year.
