Martin Simpson

Wed 19 Jan

Listed in Gibson Guitars’ Top 30 Acoustic Guitarists of all time and universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, a Martin Simpson show bears 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 songwriting produced the poignant Never Any Good, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.

Martin continues to collaborate with a dazzling array of people from across the musical spectrum: Jackson Browne, Martin Taylor, June Tabor, Richard Hawley, Bonnie Raitt, Danny Thompson, David Hidalgo, Danú, Richard Thompson and Dom Flemons are among the great musicians he has worked with.

A virtuoso player without question, 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.
