2008 was a fantastic year for Martin Simpson, starting with being nominated for no less than five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, winning two; Best Album and Best Original Track. He has been nominated again this year, for Best Musician.
ďAlthough itís his guitar virtuosity thatís frequently lauded, itís as an interpreter of song that Martin Simpson really scores. ...Simpson is taking his place, not just as a hero for guitar-besotted acolytes but as one of the national treasures of English traditional music."
