Oct 31st MARTIN SIMPSON + Jack Harris

£12 advance/more on the door

Martin Simpson's guitar playing is unsurpassed; he is one of the finest finger pickers and slide pickers of our time and was recently named one of the top artists of the decade by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Winner of 5 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards - 2 of them in 2008 for Best Original Song and Best Album - an Indie Award for his album Cool & Unusual, and the 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ards Guitar Festival, he is a superb interpreter of traditional music and song from both sides of the Atlantic. Growing up in Lincolnshire he was inspired by the likes of Martin Carthy, Davey Graham and Richard Thompson during the folk revival of the 60s. He was also hugely influenced by the recordings of Big Joe Williams, the Reverend Gary Davies, Blind Willie Johnson and Doc Watson, which has led to an eclectic style of playing and repertoire that is all his own. He has worked with the likes of Jackson Browne, David Lindley, June Tabor, Martin Carthy, Martin Taylor and Eric Bibb and is a popular and much loved solo performer. Both spell-binding, and highly entertaining, he is a master of his craft.

He has played at SXSW as a showcasing artist, and was the 2005 winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk competition. Previous winner's include Steve Earle, Gillian Welch, Slaid Cleaves and Devon Sproule.

Had the pleasure of hearing Martin at the Northern Lights Folk Club here in Edmonton earlier this month, and participating in a guitar workshop he taught as well. Spellbinding and inspiring.

His previous appearance at our place was the first and only time I've seen and heard an eBow at a folk club...

That's tonight...there'll be 100+ in attendance for this one.

As Martin drives down South from his gig in Conway last night he's going to be doing a telephone interview just after 11am live on a West London radio station (Hayes FM 91.8khz)

It's also streaming on the interweb. Click the link on this page
