interpreters of songs and tunes will come together for an evening of magical
music at, The Epstein Theatre, on Wednesday, 8 June, 2016.
Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr
will unite for the joy of playing and exploring the possibilities of music
Each musician an acknowledged virtuoso in their own right, the talented trio
have appeared together on stages in various combinations during recent years and
have enjoyed it so much, they are coming back for more.
Nancy Kerr has been a major part of the acoustic music scene since she was a
teenager and has always been a distinctive and impressive talent, turning heads
everywhere she's played or sung.
She is currently part of an award winning duo with her husband, James Fagan, and
is also 1 quarter of the Melrose Quartet and a key member of the Full English
Band, both nominated for BBC Radio 2 Folks Awards in 2014.
Nancy has previously been nominated for the BBC radio 2 Folk Award for Best
Original Song, acknowledging her superb song writing skills. She is a multi
instrumentalist of rare and astonishing talent, as well as a beautiful and
joyful singer. She is 1 of the shining stars in the British music firmament and
is going from strength to strength with every new challenge she takes on.
Andy Cutting is an extraordinary musician. A master of the diatonic accordion
and most other squeezeboxes, he is a superbly sensitive accompanist, a writer of
beautiful and thrilling tunes, a highly in demand band member and a sublime solo
His list of recording credits and sessions reads like a Who's Who of acoustic
music both in the UK and abroad and he has played live with The Who, Roger Daltry and Sting, amongst others. His work in a duo with Chris Wood and as a
member of the mighty Blowzabella, helped popularise French Canadian and European
music. Andy has toured extensively in the past with Martin Simpson, who always
says that playing music with Andy Cutting is his favourite thing to do.
Martin Simpson is a multi award winning musician, singer and songwriter who has
worked with Bonnie Raitt, Richard Hawley and many more, as well as being a world
renowned performer in his own right. He was a notable virtuoso in his early
teens and his partnership with June Tabor in the 70's and 80's brought him to
the attention of a much wider audience and led to him being courted by the world
of rock and roll, which he side stepped.
Twenty years living in the UK and he has gone from strength to strength. He has
often said that playing music with the likes of Andy and Nancy makes him a
better player and in this trio he will mainly be playing guitars and banjos,
singing and grinning from ear to ear.
The trio's debut album Murmurs, which is currently available to purchase, was
released on Topic Records, on 8 June 2015, to critical acclaim.
