Martin Callingham is an alternative folk musician from Bristol, UK. He has been melting audiences into a puddle with his intimate delivery and beautifully crafted songs since 2016’s
Tonight, We All Swim Free. The album found admirers worldwide and acclaim and airplay from the likes of Clash Magazine, Louder than War and BBC 6 Music.

Patterns is the long-awaited follow up, due for release on 24 th May 2024.

Martin has toured Europe and the UK with his understated yet exquisitely orchestrated chamber folk that owes as much to cinematic soundtracks as to songcraft. Intricately tessellated arrangements underpin Martin’s uniquely silky-smooth vocal on this beautiful new 10-track album recorded in Bristol with Jim Barr (Portishead / Get the Blessing).

‘A sublime stream of complete and utter loveliness’ – Louder than War.



We have noticed an increasing number of scams / fake tickets for our events recently (especially purchased from social media). We do our best to monitor our social media pages and delete posts from scam ticket sellers, but some still manage to slip the net as we are a small team and do not have the capacity to constantly monitor all of our event pages on social media.

We never accept tickets purchased from unofficial ticket agents or social media platforms.

If an event is sold out – we can refund ticket holders wanting to return tickets provided we have a guaranteed buyer on the waiting list and it is before Friday 12pm on the weekend of the event. Therefore there is never a need to buy from anywhere except for official ticket selling sites (our website, Headfirst, Seetickets. Ticketsellers, Skiddle, Eventbrite or any site that is linked on our website for the event). If in doubt, please contact us before making any purchases.
