Return Trip Project was established in 2019 by Martin Richardson  to record and distribute  compositions and arrangements inspired by Spanish music.  Spain has a long history of folk music dating back to the Middle Ages, and it's a cherished tradition that’s still very much alive today. The music has been influenced by many different cultures over the centuries, and has inspired musicians across the world; classical composers have taken influence from its infectious rhythms and harmonies.  

 The name Return Trip, Ida y Vuelta in Spanish, refers to musical styles that have their roots in Spain, evolved in Central and South America, and then “returned home” to Spain in modified form.  


Martin has lived in Spain  since 2010. He has studied music composition with  the Open College of  Arts and Berklee College of Music.
