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.

Roadwork has continued since returning from Belgium. Played at an event in Cardiff to for UNISON who were launching a series of films of a political nature starting with ‘Bound For Glory’ the story of Woody Guthrie. Then I hit the road on a UK tour that will bring me back to Cardiff on Dec 13. The gigs are going great and venues are selling out which is a good feeling. Plenty of new songs and old surprises keep the set list fresh each night, which keeps me on my toes.

Saw the film ‘Up’. Just beautiful.  First ten minutes were amazing and the rest followed suit. Go and see it if you can.

It hasn’t all been work though as I managed to take my daughter Harriet to see her favourite band Muse in Liverpool and work on my golf game. In fact before the second show in Scotland on Sunday I took a pilgrimage to St Andrews and walked around the golf museum for at least the fourth time. Add to this Friday’s round at Royal Lytham and you might be forgiven for thinking I’m actually having a lot of fun out here. I have to say I was gently proud of my performance there in what was a tight game with my good buddy, and Lytham member Paul Dobie, The last six holes at Lytham are known as the toughest finishing holes in Open Championship golf, but I somehow managed to play them in level par which was enough to see off my dear friend and put a skip in my step that I carried to the Lowry show in Manchester that evening. Hard times for an honest man, or at very least, a blessed one x
