Folk Favourite, Martin Simpson To Play Roots Unearthed Session

THE 2019/20 Roots Unearthed season resumes at St David’s Hall with enduring folk favourite Martin Simpson on Tuesday 10 September.

Starting at 8pm in the L3 Lounge, the virtuoso guitarist delivers another intimate masterclass conveying intense feelings of passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty with just six strings.

Over 40 years after his 1976 debut album Golden Vanity, Martin remains a true icon equally at home playing English traditional and American folk, plus blues and his own compositions. It’s with good reasons that he’s consistently named as one of the very finest fingerstyle guitar players in the world!

American singer/songwriter Jackson Browne says of Martin Simpson:

“Martin is in a class of his own. He is such an expressive player; he is ingenious in his use of the guitar. You can listen to one of his songs and three or four minutes in, he has only used the top four strings and not even played a bass note yet, and when he does, it feels like an orchestra coming in. His clarity of playing is just amazing”
