AT a time when true characters in music appear all too thin on the ground, thank goodness for Martin Stephenson.
In a show as far removed from the over-produced, manufactured, autotuned world of plastic pop as it’s possible to get, Stephenson was the modern day troubadour armed with a trusty guitar, a lifetime of experience and a head full of tunes.
With his denim dungarees, battered leather jacket and cap he could have stepped straight off a box car during the Dustbowl era.
And much of the night had an American theme with Country and Western swing featuring prominently in a 90-minute set.
