Prior to the release of his new album ‘It’s OK, I’m still laughing!’, the German singer, songwriter and troubadour Martin Praetorius will make his long awaited Dublin debut on March 16th, 2022, at ‘The Boys School’ of Smock Alley Theatre.
The singer, like so many other artists, has entertained his fans on the net for the past two years with his weekly show ‘Wednesdays live with Martin Praetorius.’
The 100th and final episode will be streamed in front of a live audience from ‘Dublin’s oldest newest theatre!’
Praetorius’ music couches somewhere in the twilight zone between Roots-Rock, Folk, Americana and Celtic influences. Although inspired by many of the great songwriters, often sharing the stage with well-known acts of the international songwriting scene, Praetorius presents his own style and sings short stories that aim point-blank, straight at the heart.
“I like that hint of the West Coast of Ireland in his diction. It’s beautiful.”
Fiachna Ó Braonáin, RTE Radio 1
“The German with the Irish heart.”
David Dee Moore, Acoustic Yard Radio Show
“It’s hard to take on classic tunes like that and leave some sort of imprint of your own, but fair play to Martin Praetorius, that’s a fine version of Van’s ‘Into the mystic’.”
Ralph Mc Lean, BBC Radio Ulster
