Folk Bands and Artists
Martin Simpson is a multi-award winning musician, singer and songwriter who has worked with Bonnie Raitt, Richard Hawley, Jackson Brown, June Tabor, Richard Thompson and many more, as well as being a world-renowned performer in his own right. He was a notable virtuoso in his early teens and his partnership with June Tabor in the 70s and 80s brought him to the attention of a much wider audience and led to him being courted by the world of rock and roll, which he sidestepped. Twenty years living in the USA exposed him to a whole range of music, which he absorbed like a sponge, and since living back in the UK he has gone from strength to strength. He has often said that playing music with likes of Andy and Nancy makes him a better player and in this trio he will be mainly playing guitars and banjos, singing and grinning from ear to ear.
