MARTIN SIMPSON


 

performing at

 TOWN HALL LIVE, KIRTON

on


Friday 11th 

September, 2015

We are delighted to host a concert by Martin Simpson fresh from his UK tour with Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr to celebrate the release of the collaborative album 'Murmurs.
To many of you Scunthorpe born Martin will need no introduction.  He is one of folk music's leading lights.  He has been nominated an amazing 31 times in 15 years at the BBC Folk Awards, more than any other artists.  He has twice won the 'Musician of the Year' accolade, as well as many others.
After 35 years as a professional musician Martin is always looking at ways to evolve, whether it be as a solo artist or in band ventures, such as being a member of The Full English or in collaboration with other artists, which in the past have included the likes of Richard Thompson, Dick Gaughan, Jackson Browne and Steve Miller to name but a few.
Martin is widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic, slide guitar and banjo players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are second to none and his own songs are masterpieces of story telling.  He spent 15 years in the deep south of America and there is no other artist who has successfully combined the diverse elements of British and Afro American blues more effectively.
His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving.
Support will come from Kirsty Bromley, who played THL earlier in the year as a singer in the band AnyTown.  She is a contemporary folk singer and has recently released her debut album 'Time Ashore' which obtained a 4* review in the latest edition of Maverick Magazine,
Advance tickets are priced at £13.  Tickets can be obtained from the One Stop store in the town, from Brian on 01652 649230 or from www.wegottickets.com
They will be £15 on the door
Get yours soon as this concert is sure to be a sell out.

Then next time at TOWN HALL LIVE ...

DANNY SCHMIDT

 September, 2015
 
Named by the Chicago Tribune as one of the 50 most significant songwriters in the last 50 years.  The Austin, Texas singer songwriter has amassed a cult following for his stunningly poetic and poignant imagery.  In his use of parable and allegory, he his often compared with Cohen and Dylan, and his songs are of such quality and beauty that they more than hold their own in this exalted company.
Live, his guitar playing is exceptional and his voice his distinctive and mellifluous.  Danny will be accompanied on his latest tour by his wife Carrie Elkin, who some of you will remember from her own headlining show last year.
Support will come from Harrogate singer and keyboard player Vicky Whelan.  Last year Vicky recorded her latest EP 'Closer to the Sun' with her band Dragonfly Tattoo.  It boasts a haunting blend of fragilty and strength.

Advance Tickets for this concert will be £12, and can be obtained from the usual outlets.
