Despite over three decades of recording and gigging experience, Martin Dale is still an energetic and entertaining performer, folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.  Playing around 200 gigs a year, he’s mostly on the road, performing as a solo folk singer/troubadour/entertainer, as half of the Folk duo Strong Ale, a third of Trad Folk Trio Roaring Maggie and a fifth of Folk Rock outfit Brophy’s Law, and Compere of the Woodsies (formerly John Peel) Stage at Glastonbury Festival …he has also released 2 albums and several singles of his own compositions on the Short Fuse label, with a new album “Bard For Life” due for release in December 2023.

Former front man with Wolverhampton Psychedelic Prog Rockers “Whirly Blues”, Blues band “Bogus Dago” and Comedy and Chaos Folk Act “Rumpus”, he has steadily worked the live circuits of Northern Europe and elsewhere, spreading his infectious joy and energy, warped humour and lightly whisky soaked voice for the last 35 years.

His first solo album “Fisk?” was recorded with legendary producer Flemming Rasmussen at the console, and contained the cult hit “Make mine a Pilsner”  which has been sung at pubs and parties all over Europe since.

The second album “A Different Kettle of Fish” is another joyful album: more acoustic than the previous album, and thus more representative of his live solo work.

Since 2001 he’s been based in Denmark, and in 2017 opened Avalon Studio on his farm in southern Fyn, from where he’s been releasing material every year…so press the big friendly “Follow” button on your preferred streaming service and keep the new music flowing.
