“I had the pleasure of working with John Martin for four months when touring my show “Dicken’s Women” throughout Australia and New Zealand. He was the ideal accompanist, sensitive, meticulous and generous, and his sweet nature and sense of humour enlivened my working hours. He was tremendously professional, making sure every performance was well prepared and each piece of music was thought about. Nothing in his work is slipshod or stale: he loves playing, and everyone remarked on the enormous contribution he made to the show. He was also a delightful traveling companion and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.”----Miriam Margolyes, internationally acclaimed award-winning actress of stage and screen.
