Martine has played mandolin and banjo with the Lugs for around ten years. Her banjo adds a great punch to the jigs and reels, while the mandolin provides gentle harmonies to the softer tunes. When she's not playing with the band she helps run the Folk Festival and the annual Matt McGinn concert in Linlithgow (http://www.linlithgowfolk.com/). She's also an active member of the Linlithgow Union Canal Society (http://www.lucs.org.uk/), where she is a qualified boatdriver and wields dangerous powertools in the interests of canal conservation.
