The Martin Green Machine started life as accordionist Martin Green's commissioned piece for the 2008 Celtic Connections New Voices series.

Since then this band of show-stopping fun monkeys have become a formidable gigging entity. Wild noise carvings, voices of unspoilt beauty, and a brass band shrunken and mutated during their trip through time and space sit atop a backline of broken beat and ferocious groove.

The Green Machine brings together some of the most prestigious and eclectic talent from England and Scotland to form a new collective set to mess the heads and feet of gig-goers the world over. Brass, beats and accordions - they've got it all.

Edinburgh jazzer Sophie Bancroft shares vocal duties with recent Bonnie Prince Billy collaborator, Inge Thomson (also of Karine Polwart Band and Harem Scarem). Brass living legend Rick Taylor with Fergus Kerr (French horn) and Andy McKreel (tuba), both regular players with the SNO and other leading orchestras.

Back-line is provided by Barnaby Stradling (Eliza Carthy, Blowzabella) and Ayrshire rhythm master Alyn Cosker. The many terrifying talents of Tom Cook include electronics, guitars, sound manipulation and live sampling. Also featuring Demmy and Moff Skelington.

"Tirelessly effervescent and creative with outstanding solo features" (The Herald)
