County Durham singer-songwriter Martin Stephenson’s early love of music led to the formation of the first Daintees line-up in his early teens. His path was destined to be a lifelong journey through the music he loved: folk, ragtime, jazz, rockabilly, show tunes, punk-pop and country. Eventually, this glorious collision of styles would become the trademark which Martin has carried through his career.

Martin formed his band The Daintees, who became busking sensations. The band, and indeed Martin, have always been known for their incredible range of styles, each album covering a multitude of genres, tempos and moods. The Daintees went on to release four critically acclaimed albums including Boat To Bolivia, Gladsome Humour and Blue, Salutation Road, and The Boy’s Heart.

They will be performing songs from their stunning new album You Belong To Blue, along with many classics.

Martin Stephenson and The Daintees performances are an exuberant tour-de-force combining heart-warming intimacy with playful humour and warm self-deprecation.

“… builds bridges between love and hate, between cradle and grave, between folk and pop, between past and present.” – NME

“… they [The Daintees] exude so much warmth and charm that you walk away wishing good to all mankind and wanting to hug everyone you encounter.” – Rockshot Magazine
