Description

First Live in concert DVD from the great guitarist and singer. Beautifully shot with 5.1 sound and over 2 hours long. With the release of Prodigal Son (winner of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award's album of the year 2008) Martin Simpson created a contemporary classic that effortlessly crossed musical boundaries and exhibited what many had known for years - here is one of this generation's most talented songwriters, singers and guitarists. Here on this special DVD Martin, takes us on a 2 hour live journey through that album, expanding and reinterpreting as only he can - and throws in a few more tunes for good measure. This professionally shot concert film has superb 5.1 sound and looks and sounds great highlighting his virtuoso playing and also the quality of his collaborative work when he is joined by Andy Cutting on Diatonic Accordion, Andy Seward on double bass and Kelly While on backing vocals. The evening is topped off by a stunning version of the song Never Any Good. As an added bonus, there is a unique short film made by Martin called You Can Go Home retracing the steps of his youth under the shadows of the blast furnaces in his native Scunthorpe. It is both a revealing and, at times, highly humorous backwards glance. Also included a short film "You Can Go Home Again".
