8 Oct Carrie Martin
Carrie Martin, singer/songwriter/guitarist from Hull, returned to music after a 20yr break encouraged by none other than the noted acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap. She cites her meeting him as the most important thing that has happened to her in her musical career. Her guitar playing attracted sufficient attention for her to be recruited as an endorsee by Vintage guitars. Influenced by Eva Cassidy and Ann Wilson from Heart, her writing and performing style nevertheless defies categorisation. Her album, "What If" featured guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap, Oliver Wakeman and Ric Sanders and had glowing reviews from all quarters, including Acoustic mag,
Rock n’ Reel and Classic Rock Society, and a double page feature in The Journal.
