Mad Martins is a unique performance, recording and book project featuring original songs, poetry and spoken word narration depicting the extraordinary lives and times of the notorious Martin Brothers, William, Jonathan and John, who were born in the late Eighteenth Century in the South Tyne area of Northumberland.

Mad Martins was initially conceived by Poet and Narrator Keith Armstrong and is led and coordinated by Musical Director and Songwriter Gary Miller.

Mad Martins offers a variety of items and services, including a triple CD lovingly housed in a lavish 104-page book, concert performances, theatre shows, exclusive merchandise and more.

Mad Martins aims to promote the legacy of the Martin Brothers, William, Jonathan and John by presenting an exciting, enthralling and educational package of entertainment, delivered through a broad range of creative art forms.

Mad Martins has been made possible through the collaboration of a wide circle of friends, all highly-motivated professionals in their respective chosen fields, each giving generously of their time and individual skills, and is a true labour of love by all concerned.

  • A collection of songs, poems, music and art
  • A 50-track triple CD and 104-page deluxe book containing lyrics, interlinking text and around 100 illustrations
  • A live concert performance
