Martin is the world's funniest male, long-haired, Victorian, piscean folk singer. Formerly of the act "Martin Pearson", Martin has rose to fame like a dead pigeon in a water tank. Martin plays the fool in B sharp.

Martin is a very funny satirical performer. He has been amusing, even thrilling audiences around the globe for ages now, and if you haven't seen him live - you're missing out.

Martin tickles the funny bone. The act is full of scintillating wit, he has an ability to take current events and observations of everyday life, and turn them into side splitting comedy routines.

Cathy would love to give up her day job and spend more time singing, playing and songwriting but the need to eat is likely to keep her from that decision for a few years yet. She started playing guitar and singing at around the age of 12 and has indulged in music as a hobby ever since, fitting it in around the aforementioned day job and her union and other political activism. She's progressed from teenage years busking with pops songs, through playing Irish tunes with work colleagues and calling dances with a bush band, to finding a happy conjunction of singing and activism with Sydney choirs Solidarity and Ecopella. She also likes to hang out at folk festival singing sessions and has even penned the odd (VERY odd!) parody. Now she's taking her chances in a solo performance at her favourite folk club.
