Summer Session with Donald McNeill & Martyn Travis
“Martyn Travis writes with the skill and subtlety of a great short story writer. The result is truth illuminated by a light only he can shine. His song ‘Father and a Son’, is devastatingly good.”Buddy Mondlock, Nashville Singer/Songwriter
Martyn Travis became a fisherman at the age of 14 and wrote his first song at 15, a love song that only a teenager could write! At 17 he wrote “The Man from Tralee” and to this day it is one of his most requested songs. A true story that captures a part of his life as a young fisherman and recounts the common story of tragedy at sea. Life at Sea is revisited time and time again in his song writing. “What’s important to me is to real life experience, snapshots of life that can be encapsulated in a song. It’s all about music, people, love, lost love, loss, work, strong women, fishing, connection….I could go on…” He followed his dream, to write and perform his own songs. Martyn left Ireland and spentmany years, based in Amsterdam, treading the boards in Holland, Belgium, Germany and theUSA, playing folk clubs, festivals and small theatres. He has recorded a few CD’s along theway and feel blessed that many of my songs have been recorded by other artists. These days Martyn is fishing, writing, recording and gigging.
Donald McNeill is a multi-instrumentalist from the North coast of Scotland, accompanying Martyn Travis on keyboards and guitar. He performs, writes and arranges across a wide variety of genres, accompanying artists in Eire, Britain and Europe
