Keith Martin  

A Variety of String Instruments

Adam, our distinguished leader, sings and plays 3 chord sequences (now 4 courtesy of YouTube) - most of the time!  Also, together with vocals, he still manages to demonstrate his expertise on the skiffle 'washboard'.   In pursuit of distancing himself from his backing band, he sometimes wears a white tailored jacket (see below).

Frank too has played almost everywhere, starting with the Sheffield Club Circuit in the 60s, to Jazz Trios, 2000 onwards. Enough said....

Katie, our newest member comes highly recommended on the vocal front.  Her past musical background has also raised its head by proving to be a very capable electric bass player.

Keith is a folkie who recently re-joined,  having previously played with YTB from 2004 to 2009. He can’t believe we’re still going, stronger than ever. In fact, he can’t believe we’re still going at all!
