7-time All Ireland Banjo Champion Martin is one of the young guns of Irish banjo. The first Irish banjo player to play at the Grand Ol Opry in Nashville, Martin has developed a reputation as musician with great musical taste and innovation. Now teaching a huge number of young banjo players Martin is passing his craft on to the next generation. Martin has toured with The Brock McGuire Band and performed extensively across Europe and the US, he now plays with the world renown We Banjo 3.
These workshops were recorded by Mike Keyes at the Milwaukee Irishfest Summer School. Martin plays variations on Dinny O’Brians (also known as the Last House in Connacht) and also on The One That Was Lost.
