A sublime but monstrous hell-raiser and troubled genius, John Martyn produced a canon of music that is both breath-taking and brittle in its complex, atmospheric beauty. John Martyn's music continues to resonate many years after his passing and Sarah Jane Morris, through her own brilliant interpretive vocal talents, picks up the torch and shines a light on this great musical maverick.


Sarah Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and R&B singer who topped the UK pop charts for a month with The Communards’ disco version of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’. 

Morris’ magnificent soul voice and emotional power has brought her a devoted audience, inspired by her belief in the power of song to change hearts and minds.

"A voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight. Soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated, this voice is more than a style, it’s a force of nature."
