Purpose and Grace

I am a big Martin Simpson fan. Together with Kate Rusby, he got me started in traditional folk music, and he also fired my enthusiasm for alternative guitar tunings.

This new album arrived in the mail two days ago.

Too soon to write a review just yet, but it seems very strong to me. Traditional songs, covers, original tunes. Collaborations with the likes of Dick Gaughen, June Tabor, Jon Boden. Wonderful.

This song is on the album. Enjoy:

    I’ve heard him a few times here in Edmonton too – wonderful guitarist and also an excellent arranger of traditional songs.
