The Official Folk Albums Chart for November 2020 was announced last night and we were delighted to see Martin Simpson’s new album, Home Recordings, enter the chart at number 5.

Commenting on his socials following the chart announcement, Martin said “Thank you people for buying my work and putting me in the top ten, at 5 indeed. I really appreciate it!”

You can find the full chart, which also see’s Fay Hield’s latest album Wrackline at number 22, on the English Folk Expo website here or watch the Folk Albums chart show below which includes Martin performing The Times They Are A-Changin’ (at around 48 minutes in).

About the Official Folk Albums Chart
The Official Folk Albums Chart aims to do more than recognise the popularity of the genre. Running parallel with the chart are English Folk Expo and Showcase Scotland Expo’s initiatives for providing career development tools for emerging artists in the genre. Both will provide dedicated web pages addressing the need for profile enhancement and chart inclusion.
