Martin Simpson

Martin Simpson - Sunday - Deepdale Festival | 23rd to 26th September 2021 - We are incredibly pleased and lucky to be able to host Martin Simpson at Deepdale.

His own songwriting produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.

Currently recording their new album, they are back in the saddle with an arsenal of new material and are the perfect way to round off Saturday on our Orchard Stage.
