ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Around 1980, as a keen young musician, helping out in the local Folk Club, in Waterford, Martyn Travis, came into contact with influential songwriters and performers, Luka Bloom, Sonny Condell and Kieran Halpin, all of who recommended that he go to Groningen in Holland, and so the journey began! He got to walk in their footsteps and played venues like the wonderful, Cafe Plus in Groningen. Martyn got together with English fiddle players Ashley Drees and Henry Sears and later teamed up with the very talented, multi instrumentalist, Siard de Jong. They also formed a folk rock band, Plan B. During this time Martyn gigged extensively in Holland, Germany, Belgium, England and also along with Siard joined the Irish American traditional band, 'Baaltinne' in Chicago.

Moving back to Ireland in 1989 to concentrate on his fishing business, Martyn still kept writing songs and performing the occasional gig. In 2005, he formed the Martyn Travis Band, a contemporary folk rock group with a twist of trad.

"Pour me a pint of Martyn Travis, a songwriter trading in a tasty line of pungent upful songs." Jackie Hayden, Hotpress Magazine 2006

"As a songwriter the highest honour has to be when someone takes the time to learn one of your songs and particularly when they go and record it and put it on an album. The first song I ever wrote, 'Man from Tralee' is on 4 different albums in America. The American versions are very interesting to listen back to. "

" The song has quiclkly become one of my most requested. Other musicians are asking if they can borrow it. This is how music lives on." Brid Dower about 'The Man from Tralee'.

Martyn is has just released his new album 'Survivin".
