We mourn the passing of Martin Nesbitt. Martin was a regular guest over the years and often visited the club for sing arounds. His personal charm out standing wit and twinkling eyes and musical talent will be sorely missed. Martin was our guest just last month and although we knew he was ill you would never of guessed it as he delivered a wonderful performance and had us rolling in the isles with laughter at some of his unbeatable comedy songs. He could also write serious songs and with his easy folk style would get any point across when he had something to say. Martin will be missed terribly by all who knew him in the Teeside and Hartlepool folk scene Rest In peace.
