Martin Simpson at Croydon Folk Club on Monday Night, 22nd July, 8:15
“What’s it like being the best guitar player in the world…?” BBC Radio 4 interviewer
Martin Simpson, in true Boris Johnson fashion, evaded the question.
Martin Simpson is one of the finest-ever acoustic and slide guitar players.
He is a virtuoso player without question and a true master of his art.
Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, Martin is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving.
Listen to his poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from ‘Prodigal Son’, 2007 Folk Album of the Year.
He has twice won BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year.
Martin’s latest solo album, ‘Trails and Tribulations’, was released in September 2017.
In addition to his 21 solo albums, he has collaborated with a dazzling array of artists across the musical spectrum, from Jackson Browne to June Tabor.
2015 saw the release of ‘Murmurs’ with Andy Cutting on squeezebox and Nancy Kerr on fiddle.
“Martin Simpson is a rare talent, an accomplished musician with the ability to create that warm, relaxed atmosphere perfect for an evening’s entertainment.” Nicky Thornley, Ropetackle
