From his youth, Martin Heaton played guitar and sang in local folk clubs in the Harrogate area, accompanying himself or playing along with others. He moved to Ryedale 25 years ago and began writing songs when he realised that what was being played in the clubs, was not his style. Martin's musical influences include Bob Dylan, Richard Thompson, John Martyn and Clive Gregson. He has recorded two CD's, "The Last Chance" and "Stop What You're Doing" . Martin performs regularly at the Black Swan FC, the Sun Inn Acoustic Night, the Black Swan FC (Pickering) and other venues in the area. He recently played 3 gigs in Scotland and played at the "Open Mike" at Glastonbury. His own composition "I Won't Forget You When I'm Gone", won the BAMFEST Songwriters competition, and he appears regularly on Vixen Radio "Foxes Den", and Radio York "Folk and Blues Show". He is currently recording songs for his new album.
"There's no music that ain't played by folks"
