Folk Bands and Artists
Martin Harley is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation. His Kings Place concert is part of his UK Solo Tour this November/December.
Live at Southern Ground, his eagerly anticipated new album, was recorded in Nashville in collaboration with Daniel Kimbro (Jerry Douglas, Larkin Poe) on upright bass. A mixture of retrospective solo and duo arrangements, the album features Martin on Weissenborn – a traditional Hawaiian acoustic guitar played across the lap. ‘It’s a simple, honest and direct album... two new friends playing a few songs over a cold beer or two’ says Martin. ‘There’s a great feeling when you click with someone. It frees you up to experiment with the arrangement and the dynamic of a song.’
