Martin Simpson - Folk at The Flavel

Martin Simpson - Folk at The Flavel

Folk at the Flavel welcomes back a true Flavel favourite, one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin Simpson. Martin will be featuring new tracks from an album being recorded for release over the summer. The sell-out audiences at Martin’s previous visits to the Flavel have seen that whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material he is a guitarist of immense subtlety.


Martin has been nominated an astounding 31 times in the 16 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards - more than any other performer. There is no doubt that, after 45 years as a professional musician, Martin is better than ever.


“Simpson has become a fine interpreter of traditional and other songs, as well as a notable writer of his own.”
