Martin Simpson

Back by poular demand!

Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own song-writing produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.

The remarkable intimate solo performances Martin gives go from strength to strength - every gig is a master-class. He travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.

40 years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, in 1976, Martin is known as a guitarist of formidable talent. Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, he is consistently named as one of the very finest finger-style guitar players in the world.

“One of the virtuoso instrumentalists of the English music scene” ‘Sounds better than ever’
