Martin Simpson is widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world. His interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling and his solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. Martin has been nominated an astounding 27 times in the fifteen years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards - more than any other performer - with 9 consecutive years as nominee for “Musician of The Year”, which he has won twice. 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.
