Tonight this renowned guitarist and singer presents material from brand new album Trails & Tribulations, which he calls “a collection of songs about nature, about travels and about real life stories.  There are traditional songs, poems and contemporary songs by great writers, and songs that I had to write because nobody else knew what I wanted to say”.  The record features some of Martin’s most inventive playing yet, displaying his virtuosity on acoustic, electric, resonator and lap-steel guitars, together with banjo and ukulele.  Consistently named one of the finest folk guitarists in the world, he is the most nominated musician in the history of the BBC Folk Awards, with a remarkable 31 nods.  A true master of his art.

“One of the virtuoso instrumentalists of the English music scene.  Sounds better than ever” ****  The Guardian
“Simpson’s latest is a potent blend of the highest calibre…Simpson has never sung or played better”
   Acoustic Magazine

“One of our finest traditional musicians, Simpson’s latest album offers a roving overview of his talents” **** Uncut
