Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th September 2021
Sunday at 6:30pm - Brick Barn
We are incredibly pleased and lucky to be able to host Martin Simpson at Deepdale. 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, Martin Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own songwriting produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.
Martin continues to collaborate with a dazzling array of people from across the musical spectrum: Jackson Browne, Martin Taylor, June Tabor, Richard Hawley, Bonnie Raitt, Danny Thompson, David Hidalgo, Danú, Richard Thompson and Dom Flemons are among the great musicians he has worked with.
He has had the most nominations of any performer in the 18 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, an astonishing 32 times, 13 of those as Musician of the Year, winning that particular accolade twice.
A virtuoso player without question, but above all Martin Simpson conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty. A true master of his art. Simply not to be missed.
Chris has put together the most incredible programme of live music for Deepdale Festival 2021. Amazing musical talent from the local area and nationally. Our 4th annual festival hosts an amazing array of talent and is a chilled out place to enjoy live music and great company.
As a pre cursor to the main festival, for those staying on Thursday night, we have a very special evening session in the Brick Barn. Not to be missed!
