Testimonials

 

Hi Martin
Thank you for being such a lovely guest at our club last night, I hope you had a good run back to Faversham. It was a pleasure to meet and hear you - I thoroughly enjoyed your fine performance and it was clear you had everyone else gripped too.
Thanks also for your CD - I'm looking forward to some great listening weekend, with your latest one too to enjoy!
Hope to see you in action again soon, solo or with Watergrain.

Best wishes,
Mary & the Bowes Park Folk Club organising crew

Wonderful birthday ceilidh - thanks in no small part to the very fabulous Bowstring band ably led by Martin Young.

 

Val Joyce, Sarratt, Herts

 

Just wanted to thank you for coming to our annual Fund Raiser for the Pilgrims Hospices. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and while it was fun for those dancing it was equally so for those watching. Quite hilarious really!
You were marvellous, thank you so much. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Canterbury Bowling Club.
We raised £1483.00 for our charity
Many thanks again and best wishes

"Thanks for a great evening - still enjoying the CDs - great stuff! PS: Was at Haverfolk Wednesday - told them about your "worry dolls" Cheers."

 

Bill Pardon, Waltham Abbey Folk Club

 

Lovely voice, very quick wit, good variety of songs of both the listening and singalong chorus kind - make sure he sings his "Climbing Boy" song, and the rolling-in-the-aisles one about "Eddie Baker's Muckspreader"! All round pleasing and sincere performer...

 

Jenni K – Cardrona Festival, New Zealand

 

Martin Young from UK is great. A very entertaining singer and caller of dances...



 

Jane Hart - Cardrona Festival, New Zealand

 

I thoroughly enjoyed both of your CDs, some superb tracks on them, and can thoroughly recommend you to people in our folk club. let me know if you plan to return to New Zealand at any time in the future...

 

Anne Campbell - Levin folk club, New Zealand

 

Thanks for the CD. We will double our Martin Long repertoire and add ‘Will You Pity The Climbing Boy’ to ‘Janitors And Jailers’ – a great song....

 

Mary & Steve Dickinson - Everyman Folk Club, Saxmundham, Suffolk

 

Young is a good singer with good selection of self-penned songs. Worth seeing him live...

 

Bob Harragan - Taplas, the voice of folk in Wales and the borders

 

There are some fine songs here. A really good second album. I loved it...

 

Jim Schofield - Buzz! with Scansfolk Magazine

 

Martin offers an effective blend of contemporary and traditional music alongside his own compositions, sensitively accompanied on guitar and cittern. His song ‘Will You Pity The Climbing Boy’ deserves to become a
folk club classic - well worth a listen...

 

Roger Beard - Folk at the Oak, Grimsby

 

Another great contemporary song by Martin with a most authentic traddy sounding melody...

 

Keith Kendrick (of ‘Janitors and Jailers’)

 

I just honestly thoroughly enjoyed this CD...

 

Ken Bladen (of ‘Botany Bay’) - Folk North West Magazine
