Martin Simpson was born in Lincolnshire, Northern England, played his first paid gig at fourteen, became professional at seventeen, and since then has become known as one of the most widely admired acoustic guitar players in the world. He has played with such musical luminaries as Richard Thompson, Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention as well as working in the Albion Band and for 10 years as collaborator with June Tabor. More recently he has shared stages with Steve Miller and David Lindley, as well as recording with Ronnie Earl, Bob Brozman, Ed Gerhard, and a Chinese pipe player. His solo guitar performances showcase his mastery of the guitar as well as his far-ranging repertoire. Martin achieves a very clear bell-like tone with his Sobell Model One guitar (crafted by Northumberland luthier Stefan Sobell), on which he is using medium gauge strings. He adds that it's his favorite guitar. Martin's dynamic solo guitar performances are legendary, showcasing his mastery of the acoustic guitar as well as his far-ranging repertoire. Simpson emphasizes that his approach to arranging traditional Celtic tunes in fingerstyle form comes more from the realm of songs than from the instrumental tradition. In other words, most of these pieces he arranges for guitar normally have words. The songs he arranges speak of many topics, including love gone wrong in both the upper and lower classes of early 19th century Scotland.
