Our Song of the Day is taken from The Shee‘s live performance of their Continuum project at Celtic Connections 2016. Each member of the band nominated a collaborator to work with, and Laura-Beth Salter chose Martin Simpson.
In one of their FRUK guest blogs for the project (read all the entries here) she told us:
Like me, Martin is from Lincolnshire but spent fifteen years in America. He crosses Oldtime American with English music in a way I love to hear. Martin’s songwriting inspires me just as much as the way he takes traditional American songs and makes them his own. I feel a real connection with his choice of material, singing style and always enjoy the way he accompanies a song with such a unique guitar style without distracting from the words.
