Hi,

I just bought a June Tabor compilation disc and was thrilled by the songs she recorded with Martin Simpson backing her up on guitar. That was a mighty collaboration.
   Does anybody know what Martin is up to these days? Does he ever do tours on the East Coast of the U.S.?

Just wondering..

I believe he's living in Sheffield now. The weather isn't as nice, but the landscape is more interesting.

Sunny Scunny's Best-Loved Son is playing and as well as, if not better than, ever - had the pleasure of seeing him 'live' a couple of times during the past 2 years. That's all that matters to me, his personal life's his own business. Getting like The Daily Mirror on here! (ROTFL) :0)

When I saw him earlier this year I got the feeling from some of his comments that another Trad English album may be on the way as a follow up to Bramble Briar.

Cheers

I have nothing but admiration for the bloke and his abilities as a musician and guitarist and accompanist, I wish the man all the best in life as I'm sure my old friend Jim McDonald does!

Life goes on and new ventures and experience can lead to many things
All the best to Martin and also to you Strollin' Johnny ~ see you at Gainsborough soon

Martin isn't a 'closet banjo player' - he's including the 5-string banjo in his set these days, and making a great job of it!

We had him at the Railway, Heatley, as part of the Lymm Festival, in a marquee with around 170 present in June this year. I was privileged to be his 'sound man' for the concert. A reet good 'do'!!

My guess is he's 'not culturally unique enough' to do gigs in the US these days... like so many other Brits who cannot get a Visa - Les Barker and Grant Baynham to name but two. Stinks, dunnit?!

He played at the Railway, Lymm, a few weeks ago - to a full house. I was the sound man as well as the support artiste, and it was a great night!

He's playing in Stroud at the Space on Dec 10th with Andy Cutting - who is no slouch on the melodeon.

It's Cajun night so I will be torn.
