Martin Simpson & Folk Souvenir

Festival Folk You!

The Festival Folk You! is already a real benchmark among folk music circles all over the state. Now it is coming to the Petita at the Teatre Principal with a concert by Martin Simpson, who will be accompanied by Andy Cutting on the accordion. Simpson is now the most outstanding artist on the British folk music scene and this is accredited by the fact that he received 27 nominations in 15 years for the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk prizes, and that Jackson Browne, who collaborated in the recording of Never Any Good (a record that is celebrating its 10th anniversary and that he will play fully in the concert), considers him to be one of the three best guitar players of all time.
The evening will get underway with the Mallorcan Joana Gomila alongside her band Folk Souvenir, who will offer a guided visit through traditional Mallorcan music influenced by other deep-rooted musical traditions such as jazz. Photo: Graham Whitmore
