Martin Simpson At The Ivy House, London

June 28 @ 7:00 pm BST

Martin Simpson reaches for his banjo as it is handed to him by someone outside the camera frame. This is part of the promotional series for his album, Skydancers, taken by Andy Muscrof.

Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, Martin’s solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent songs (such as “Never any Good”, about his father), he is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving.


Rob Anderson, who hails originally from Oregon USA, is a fine songwriter. Apart from his own songs, in recent years he has been committed to keeping the songs of his old songwriting partner Wayne Drury in circulation, in both The Wayne Drury project and most recently with Jackdaw.


Maverick Magazine says of Rob he has “…an authentic feeling of Willie Nelson or Waylon Jennings”. Jackdaw’s recent album has been receiving rave reviews from everybody who has reviewed it.

Hailing from Kent, Steve Hewitt is an emerging singer songwriter with a strong Americana influence who is pushing the boundaries of folk-roots.
