Not yet reviewed.
World renowned guitarist, singer and songwriter Martin Simpson releases his 20th solo album in 40 years 'Trails & Tribulations' via Topic Records.
'Trails & Tribulations' features some of Martin's most inventive playing yet, showcasing his virtuosity on a variety of instruments including acoustic guitars, resonator guitars, Weissenbown lap steel guitar, electric guitars, 5 string banjo, ukulele – and voice. Highlights include a sublime rendition of tragic, cult US folk singer Jackson C. Frank's 'Blues Run The Game' and the thrilling dirt road blues of 'East Kentucky.'
There is no doubt that after 45 years as a professional musician Martin is, right now, better than ever. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving.
There is no-one who has more successfully combined the diverse elements of British, Afro-American and old-timey music than Simpson.
