Acclaimed singer songwriter and guitarist Carrie Martin will perform at the Comrades on Saturday.

Born in Hull, Carrie gave up music to raise her children. Her guitar went untouched for two decades until a chance meeting with guitar virtuoso Gordon Giltrap changed her life.

Close mentoring from Gordon saw her take a leap forward, attracting endorsements from Vintage Guitars, G7th Capos and Martin Strings.

Her last two albums Seductive Sky and Entity included guests Elliott Randall, Gordon Giltrap, Oliver Wakeman, Daniel Cassidy (brother of late Eva Cassidy) and ex Bad Company guitarist Dave Colwell.

Carrie has performed in Canada on tour and has represented Vintage Guitars twice at the Namm Show In California.

She also guests at various guitar shows around the UK to demo her use of open tunings.

Her new album ‘Beside the Evergreen’ is due out next spring on digital platforms, CV and vinyl with an array of musicians guesting along side her.

Carrier said: “I’m always looking out for new venues to play and share my music.

“I’m delighted to be making my debut at The Comrades Club in Richmond this week.”
