Martin Stephenson (Monday 8th July 2019)

Martin is a teacher at Beverley School for Autism in Middlesbrough and has worked in East Cleveland and Middlesbrough for 30 years. He lives in Saltburn and is a regular performer at the Saltburn Monday Night Folk Club and at the Saltburn Conservative Open Mic nights. He performs well known songs along with a few of his own tunes about family, life and love.

Martin grew up in South East London as part of a large Anglo-Irish Catholic family. His musical influences from an early age involved older brothers and sisters listening to The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Dylan and the Kinks to name a few. David Bowie was an ever-present musical influence throughout his life. Martin's more recent influences have been Rufus and Louden Wainwright, Tom Waites, Nick Cave and more and more the folk scene. Anything with a good tune and a bit of a story behind it.

Martin plays the baritone ukulele. His style is gentle and laid back and most suited to the more intimate atmosphere provided by the folk club scene.
