Martin Simpson 'Rooted' LP
Following on from 2017’s unanimously-acclaimed, ‘Trails & Tribulations,’
comes Martin Simpson’s 21st solo album, ‘Rooted'.

Recorded and produced by Andy Bell, ‘Rooted’ features special guest appearances from, amongst others, John Smith, Andy Cutting, Dom Flemons, Ben Nicholls and Richard Hawley.

Summing up the themes of his new album, Martin says: ”The music and songs em-
brace nature and travel, mental health, real life stories, loss, politics and history... and the threads that bind all this together can be followed back a long way, to 1965 when I got my first guitar and started to soak up material and ideas at a very rapid rate.”

Rooted features an array of stellar guest musicians, including Nancy Kerr (fiddle
and viola), Andy Cutting (melodeon and diatonic accordion), Liz Hanks (cello), John
Smith (electric guitar and vocals), Ben Nicholls (string bass and electric bass guitar),
Julie Matthews (vocals), Alan Barnes (clarinet), Max Simpson (vocals), Amy Smith
(vocals), Chris While (vocals) and Tom A Wright (drums and percussion). Richard
Hawley and Dom Flemons contribute backing vocals and bones respectively to first
single ‘Neo’. As well as vocals, Martin himself plays banjola, 5-string banjo, 6-string
fretless banjo, electric bass guitar and electric and resonator guitars!
