Martin is a children's songwriter from the Bay Area with original songs aimed specifically at encouraging environmental awareness, sustainability, and making choices that lead to a healthy Earth and lifestyle.
We hired Martin to play at a school fundraiser for Kindergarten families. Kids and adults loved his songs and his focus on the environment and sustainability. Martin does many school assemblies and we hope he comes back soon to perform for our whole school. If you are looking for great music with an important message that's fun and kid-friendly, Martin is the guy. He's was also a pleasure to work with leading up to our event. A+ for the whole experience!
Response from Martin and the Green Guitar:
Thank you for the kind words, Allison! It was a treat to play for your kindergarten classes! I've contacted your school and will follow up soon in hopes to play an assembly for the rest of the grade levels...so I plan to see you again soon! :) -Martin
What to Expect
Martin and the Green Guitar is a one man performance, playing acoustic guitar and singing. A typical show is 45mins in length and there is a lot of sing along encouragement. Participation and ideas are constantly flowing throughout the show. Kid volunteers sometimes are called up for ideas, lyrics, or to play a small instrument to add to several of the songs. Any Raffi or Charlotte Diamond performance you could find on YouTube is similar to what you will get with Martin and the Green Guitar.
As a father of three and with an education in sustainable resource management, Martin (and the Green Guitar) uses his lifelong musical experience and passion to write children's songs dedicated to environmental stewardship and health. These songs are aimed at children 12yrs and under and encourage critical thinking skills as well as responsibility for the environment and our actions toward it. With their catchy melodies and quirky lyrics, Martin hopes his songs will inspire children to imagine and grow up to build a healthy and sustainable future.
Additional Booking Notes
I don't need much. A place to stand, a microphone, a mic cable, and a guitar cable into any kind of PA would suffice. Also, I have and can bring all gear I may need for any sized show.
