Martin Simpson

Venue: The Corn Hall

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. A hugely popular performer whose profile has continued to rise over recent years, there is no doubt that, after 35 years he is, right now, better than ever.

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

"Simpson’s playing is technically stunning, intricate and exquisite…” The Guardian
