Forty years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, in 1976, musician Martin Simpson is known as a guitarist of formidable talent.
Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, he is consistently named as one of the very finest fingerstyle guitar players in the world.
He has had the most nominations of any performer in the 18 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, 32 times - 13 of those as Musician of the Year, winning that particular accolade twice.
Martin’s most recent album, Home Recordings, was released in November last year to the usual critical acclaim.
Support on the night is Nessy Williamson.
Admission £20, doors open 7.30pm.
