- October 9, 2019 - Doors at: 7:15pm / Showtime: 8:00pm
GrassRoots Regina is extremely pleased to present veteran British folk musician, Martin Simpson, in concert.
Simpson is one of the world's premiere acoustic guitarists and a powerful songwriter with a rich, charactered voice. His playing is instantly recognizable, and revered among guitar fans. His body of work is very diverse encompassing all types of traditional and acoustic music. He has toured with everyone from June Tabor to Steve Miller.
Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. The remarkable intimate solo performances Simpson gives go from strength to strength – every performance is a master class. He travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.
“Martin is in a class of his own. He is such an expressive player; he is ingenious in his use of the guitar. His clarity of playing is just amazing.” - Jackson Browne
