Description

Winner of Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2008

Featuring the song, Never Any Good, which won Best Original Song at the same award ceremony, Prodigal Son is a collection of traditional and contemporary numbers, reflecting his live performances and showcasing his own impressive song and tune writing talents. It’s a very personal album, with two stand out tracks being a song about his father – Never Any Good and a tune written on the death of his mother early in 2007, She Slips ’Away.

With an outstanding guest list on the album of Danny Thompson on double bass, Andy Cutting on melodeon, Barry Philips on cello, Alistair Anderson on concertina and Northumbrian Pipes, plus the supreme vocal talents of Jackson Browne, Kate Rusby and Kellie While, Prodigal Son is a beautiful listen and our recommended first choice for those who want to know what Martin Simpson’s all about!
