Martin Simpson

February 26, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Martin Simpson folk music live at Hinckley ACT

Friday 26th February 2016 – we welcome back one of the finest artists to appear at the Hinckley ACT in recent years – Martin Simpson.

“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.”

About Martin Simpson

Martin has been nominated an astounding 27 times in the fourteen 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.

There is no-one who has more successfully combined the diverse elements of British, Afro-American and old-timey music than Simpson. His 15 years living in the US were well spent. In addition his own songwriting has produced some real gems, from the truck-stop epic, “Love Never Dies” to the profoundly moving “Never Any Good” and “One Day”.
