An intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving performance by one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world.  Martin’s interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling as he combines the different elements of British, Afro-American and old-timey music with his own songs.

Martin Simpson has been nominated an astounding 27 times in the 15 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer – with nine consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year.  In 2017 he released his latest album Trails and Tribulations to huge critical acclaim.

Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual and a guitarist of immense subtlety.
