Martin Simpson: A Night for Folk Lovers

21st Jan
7pm

The remarkable intimate solo performances by Martin Simpson go from strength to strength – every gig is a masterclass. Martin travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.

“What’s it like being the best guitar player in the world…?” Martin’s modesty and grace prevented him from answering this BBC Radio 4 interviewer’s question recently, but the facts speak for themselves.

40 years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, in 1976, Martin is known as a guitarist of formidable talent. Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, he is consistently named as one of the very finest fingerstyle guitar players in the world.

Supported this evening by Gregory Harrison, who will deliver his own style of folk with hints of jazz and swing.

Seats are unallocated, so please make sure to arrive in plenty of time.

Doors/Bar 7pm | Show starts 8PM
