Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin's interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. Nominated an astounding 29 times in the eleven years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer — 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.
"One of the virtuoso instrumentalists of the English music scene" The Guardian
