Fair Flowers Among Them All (The 'Mad Martins' Instrumentals) is a collection of all the instrumental backing tracks to the spoken-word pieces that appear on the 'Mad Martins' 3xCD/104-page Book set. It also includes the orchestral backing track to the song 'In My Hands'.

The CD is housed in a beautiful card wallet, designed by Helen Temperley at Helen Temperley, and is intended to compliment the design of the 'Mad Martins' 3xCD/104-page Book set.

Fair Flowers Among Them All (The 'Mad Martins' Instrumentals) is a lovely little limited edition collector's item and companion piece to the 'Mad Martins' 3xCD/Book.

"This is a wonderful relaxing folk release with an emphasis on dulcimer and mandolin, with Northumbrian pipes and accordion... and is a great way of understanding the style of music being used by Gary and others. For any lovers of traditional folk music, fans of The Whisky Priests, this is simply essential. Why not give it a listen and see what I am making such a fuss about?" Rating: 10/10 (Kev Rowland, FRaMe Music, UK, March 11, 2018)

"The instrumental CD, whilst not essential to the telling of the stories, is a worthwhile addition to the set as it gives the opportunity to hear the well played tunes without dialogue overlaid." (Joe Grint, FATEA, UK, January, 2018)
