A full-time career as a musician was the natural evolution of Martha Spencer's upbringing on the slopes and hollows of southwest Virginia's rugged Whitetop Mountain, where a rich tradition of old-time Mountain music has endured through many decades of changes. "Music was a part of life," Martha shares "Then, I started traveling and really enjoyed that; meeting people and how music can bring so much joy, whether you're playing it or teaching it." Her talent and vibrant stage presence have brought her to venues across the USA, UK, New Zealand, and Australia. She performs as a solo act, as well as in the Whitetop Mountain Band, The Blue Ridge Girls, Old Time Country Roadshow, and Spencer Branch, to name a few of her projects. Here her classic country sound is on display with her enchanting voice, witty songwriting, all backed up by world class musicians. - A jack of all trades, Martha is a singer-songwriter, plays guitar, banjo, fiddle, bass, and mandolin, and is additionally well known for her flatfoot dancing. - There's a joy in being part of something bigger than oneself that permeates Martha's musical ethos. "I think a lot of people who have passed on live on through song. If you're singing a song on stage somewhere far away that they taught you or teaching somebody else the tune they taught you, a little piece to their kindness and generosity, their love flows on through the art and music. I hope I'm a part of that."
