Martin Simpson has influenced guitarists worldwide with his powerful interpretations of British, Irish, and American traditional tunes and songs, as well as an impressive catalog of his own original songs. Whether playing acoustic guitar or banjo, his musical voice is rich, authentic, and immediately recognizable.
We were lucky to be able to spend a recent afternoon with Martin at his home studio in Sheffield, England, overlooking the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park. While we were there, Martin played his new original song ”Trouble Brought Me Here” with Amy Smith singing harmony vocals. The song, which Martin played on his new PRS Angelus prototype, came to Martin in a dream, as he recounts in the introduction to the song.
