Martha Tilston, plus special guest Ewan Mclennan at Miss Peapod's Cafe, Penryn. Time 8pm. Tickets: £8adv; £9door.
Martha Tilston has grown up immersed in music. So much so that she thinks of song writing as the coat she wears on the journey, not the destination she is travelling to.
It has taken her to many interesting places; opening the acoustic stage at Glastonbury; touring the far reaches of the globe; gaining a BBC nomination for best new-comer at the folk awards; recording and releasing several of her own albums, being a guest vocalist for zero 7, and meeting and playing with some of the world's most inspiring.
Martha, now based by the sea in Cornwall, followed the many adventures and diversions along the way, -with the support and inspiration of her parents including:
father Steve Tilston (acclaimed Singer songwriter) and step mother Maggie Boyle (renowned folk singer), she ran from the London recording studios of the plastic pop scene as a girl, into the beduin tent of the 'small world stage'.
Martha formed duo MOUSE with Nick Marshall and together they travelled the country with the solar stage, its musicians, clowns, lantern light and canvas. Mouse very quickly gained a large word of mouth following. They released a ground breaking album and had a magical couple of years discovering the underground acoustic music scene and living a lifetimes' worth of stories to tell.
