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.

Advantage Africa

Martyn is the patron of Advantage Africa and you will often hear him talk about the charity or read about them in ‘The Passport Queue’. The charity’s founders, Andrew and Jane Betts, as well as their trustees and supporters, run a stall at Martyn’s concerts in and near Milton Keynes and occasionally further afield.

Advantage Africa supports the vision of inspirational people to overcome poverty and disadvantage. They work with disabled children and adults to challenge prejudice and create opportunities for them to access education and assistive devices. They help reduce the spread and impact of HIV through prevention initiatives and care for orphans, widows and people living with AIDS.

You can find out more by visiting the Advantage Africa website.

Advantage Africa’s latest newsletter highlights their support of inspirational people to provide education, support child-headed households and meet the challenge of HIV & AIDS in Kenya and Uganda.
