As previously reported we had the privilege a couple of weekends back to have Martin John Henry play a house gig for us.
Instead of the usual half hour slot you would see at a standard show we had the luxury of 2 different half hour sets which incorporated De Rosa songs old and new, solo numbers and even a Will Oldham cover.
It was a diverse set too ranging from the likes of ‘Camera’ (the first time I’d heard it as an acoustic song) to much gentler fare such as ‘Falling Water’.
If you’ve got the room and fancy asking him to play in your front room, then give him a shout. Definitely MPT recommended.
Here’s a couple of tunes from his second (De Rosa based) set on the day:
