Martin Simpson

Thursday 31 January 2019

Nominated for ‘Musician of the Year’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018, Martin Simpson is known as a guitarist of formidable talent, equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions.

Martin received the most nominations of any performer in the 18 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, winning ‘Musician of the Year’ twice and has collaborated with a dazzling array of people from across the musical spectrum including Jackson Browne, Martin Taylor, June Tabor, Richard Hawley, Bonnie Raitt, Danny Thompson, David Hidalgo, Danú, Richard Thompson and Dom Flemons.

This intimate solo performance is a chance to watch one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players in the world at the very top of his game.
