Recorded in the UK and in New Orleans, 'Righteousness & Humidity' saw Martin Simpson lay the groundwork for his recent award-winning successes.

Released in August 2003, this follow up to the award-winning album 'The Bramble Briar' is a collection of new recordings, this time drawn from the American tradition and featuring his unequalled instrumental and vocal ability. As Martin says in his album notes, this record allows him to tip his hat to the music and people of the Southern US states, and features a mix of traditional song and Martin's own compositions. Alongside his singing, Martin plays acoustic guitar, ukulele, electric guitar, lap-steel, percussion, 5-string banjo and slide guitar. Much of the album was recorded in New Orleans and he is joined by a crack team of local musicians. Steeleye Span's Rick Kemp features on some of the tracks recorded in the UK.
