Martin Simpson – solo acoustic guitar & vocals performance
Solo acoustic guitar & vocals performance.
There is no doubt that after 45 years as a professional musician Martin is, right now, better than ever. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving.
His career includes collaborations on stage and record with Richard Hawley, Richard Thompson, June Tabor, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jackson Browne, Danny Thompson, Danú, Martin Carthy, Cara Dillon, David Lindley, Roy Bailey, Martin Taylor, David Hidalgo, Steve Miller, Dick Gaughan, Dom Flemons and many more.
Martin has been nominated an astounding 27 times in the fifteen years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk – more than any other performer – with 9 consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year, which he has won twice. Have a listen to a taster of Martin’s new album which will came out in August
