In recent months, there have been so many departures from the world of Alternative music and indeed Alternative television to. The latest in a long line to leave us, is singer/songwriter/guitarist and all-round folk-genius 'John Martyn'. John was seen many times on TV, guesting on late night programmes and the many music shows that followed him through the years.

First played on The Overflow by Tim Rice back in 1987...  since then many of John's albums have been featured on air, from the likes of 70's albums 'Solid Air' & 'One world', to the more recent 'On the cobbles' of 2004. John will be fondly remembered by us for his unique brand of contemporary folk music.
