I have it on good authority that Beth Orton is to appear on a John Martyn tribute album (title unknown). Ted Barnes is also contributing a track with Gavin Clarke called ‘Over The Hill’. Don’t know when it will be released but Teds track had to be ready by the end of January 2010!!
John Martyn, OBE (11 September 1948 – 29 January 2009), born Iain David McGeachy, was a British singer-songwriter and guitarist. Over a forty-year career he released twenty studio albums, working with artists such as Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, and Phil Collins. He has been described as “an electrifying guitarist and singer whose music blurred the boundaries between folk, jazz, rock and blues”.
