Wild Singing: Martin Simpson

March 14, 2020 @ 7:30 pm


Regularly voted one of the world’s greatest guitarists, Martin Simpson has been nominated for an astonishing 23 Radio 2 Folk Awards – and won artist of the year twice.

In the first half of the evening Martin will be in conversation with Folk on Foot podcast host Matthew Bannister, sharing film footage of the emotional visit they made to Martin’s childhood haunts in Scunthorpe. His passion for the natural world was fostered by his father on rambles through local woods where they scavenged for animal carcasses and Martin learned to stop, look and listen to what was around him.

In part two, Martin Simpson plays old favourites and songs from his latest album Rooted.
