The Martin Family Band



​The Martin Family Band has been performing, teaching and playing Old Time and Irish music for 20 years and counting. From the greater Washington, D.C. area with family ties in Southwestern VA, they are a six piece family band that has learned this traditional music and passed it down through multi-generations. The band is composed of parents, Jeanean & Carl, and siblings Lydia, Emily and Claude Martin. 


We lost our dear son, brother, friend, father, and fiddler Claude Jay Martin  October 2016. We will be having a tribute concert and releasing some of his fiddle music on October 7th at 7 p.m.at the Blackrock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD.
