Revelations St Mary’s Presents…
There is no doubt that after 35 years as a professional musician Martin 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.
There is no-one who has more successfully combined the diverse elements of British, Afro-American and old-timey music than Simpson.
Martin has been in the studio with producers, Richard Hawley (in Sheffield) and Peter Denenberg (in the US) and these two gentlemen have worked their incredible magic and coaxed the most relaxed, beautiful performances out of Martin. The new CD is well on it’s way.
Martin has been nominated an astounding 26 times in the twelve years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer – with 9 consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year, which he has won twice.
