Martyn Joseph is a performer like no other: Shades of Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be - but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives delivering his "songs of lyrical intelligence" according to BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris.

Last week of SOH tour

The tour with Show Of Hands is rumbling on and all going well. Steve and Phil are a class act and I think they really give their fans value for money. Playing Cardiff Bay with them every night is always an adventure especially when I turn to Phil for solo spots. We always come up with something a little different each time.

He is a tremendous musician and I watch him warming up on the fret board and feel like retiring! We also have good chats about folk music and it’s history and I have learnt quite a bit from him. Steve and I have known each other a while now, and it’s a cool thing to be on the road with such a close friend and the understanding that brings. He is also writing a lot of new songs right now and its been good to hear them being worked out live. This week is the last and will bring the tour total up to around 35 shows. Last night I managed to dislocate my thumb..ouch! Its in a sling right now and im hoping its not going to hinder playing the guitar tonight. I might have to play a little more tenderly!
