"Martin Simpson's return to the Isle of Man for his Douglas & IOM GuitarFest debuts. No-one has more successfully combined diverse elements of British, American and roots music than Martin, multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner. 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, electric, spellbinding and deeply moving. Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual, and a guitarist of immense subtlety. "One of the virtuoso instrumentalists of the English music scene" "Sounds better than ever" The Guardian. http://www.martinsimpson.com/ http://www.manxmusic.com/performer_144376.html Tickets £15 from www.Villagaiety.com (including booking fee) GuitarFest is a JonnoPromotions event supported by Island of Culture, Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Aston International Limited to all of whom, many thanks.
