Martin Simpson – A Master of His Art

Don't miss Martin Simpson, one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, when he comes to the Tolbooth Stirling on Thursday 19th September!

Martin Simpson – A Master of His Art

About Martin Simpson – A Master of His Art

Nominated ‘Musician of the Year’ – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018

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.

Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own songwriting produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.

A virtuoso player without question, but above all Martin Simpson conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty. A true master of his art.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Martin Simpson – A Master of His Art are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
