A Martin Simpson special
on BBC4

A date for your diary - on Monday 5th October at 7.30pm, BBC4 will broadcast a special half hour programme featuring Martin's Main Stage concert appearance at this year's Cambridge Folk Festival! The programme was a late addition to BBC4's schedule after Martin and the band put on such a fantastic performance at the festival this summer. In addition to the previously commissioned programmes from Cambridge, featuring Booker T, Lucinda Williams and Oumou Sangare, BBC4 added a fourth to the list - Martin Simpson! The three track clip of Martin and the band on the BBC's Cambridge Folk Festival mini site, was the second most popular choice of viewing after Booker T, which no doubt strengthened their decision to broadcast this half hour feature. Martin is joined by Keith Angel (drums), Jon Boden (fiddle & vocals), BJ Cole (pedal steel), Andy Cutting (melodeon) and Andy Seward (bass). Songs featured include "An Englishman Abroad", "Home Again" and "Stagolee" from his new CD, True Stories, plus his Award winning song, "Never Any Good" and a rocking great version of "Lakes of Ponchartrain". Don't miss it! 7.30pm, Mon 5th Oct, BBC4.
