Martin Simpson

Fri 29 Mar
Folk

Martin Simpson

One of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, Martin Simpson is equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions. Over 40 years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, Martin continues to collaborate with a dazzling array of artists across the musical spectrum, from Jackson Browne to June Tabor.

Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own songwriting produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year. He has had the most nominations of any performer in the 18 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, an astonishing 32 times, 13 of those as Musician of the Year, winning that particular accolade twice.

A virtuoso player without question, but above all Martin Simpson conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty. A true master of his art.
