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. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own song writing produced the poignant Never Any Good, from Prodigal Son, 2007's BBC Radio 2 Folk Album of the year. He has had the most nominations of any performer in the 15 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, an astonishing 31 times, 12 of those as Musician of the Year, winning that particular accolade twice. A virtuoso player without question, Martin Simpson conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty.
