Martin Simpson Announces New Album and Tour

We’re very excited to announce that Martin Simpson’s new album called Skydancers will be released next March and we are now booking a new tour to accompany the release. The album is a twin release featuring a live CD recorded on recent gigs and a studio CD including some of Martin’s absolutely favourite musicians. The material is as as eclectic as one would expect. 

The remarkable intimate solo performances Martin gives go from strength to strength – every gig is a masterclass. He travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.

Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. Get in touch today to secure a booking as these dates will be snapped up quickly. 

Touring new album throughout March 2024 + available for festivals 2024. Also some availability 12 Oct – 12 Nov 2023 and for dates outside of these periods.
