There is no doubt that after 35 years as a professional musician Martin Simpson is, right now, better than ever.
Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. He has been nominated an astounding 26 times in the twelve years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, 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.
