Afro Celt Sound System

Simon Emmerson, James McNally and Martin Russell are pleased to announce that they have been able to set aside their differences and come to an amicable agreement to bring their dispute to an end.

Going forward, James, Martin and Simon have agreed that Simon will continue to perform as Afro Celt Sound System and James and Martin will work under a new name to be announced in due course.

While James, Martin and Simon will no longer be performing or working together they recognise, and are grateful for each other’s contribution to Afro Celt Sound System over the past two decades and will be working with the extensive community of musicians that make up the long standing Afro Celt Sound System family.

James, Martin and Simon would like to thank their colleagues, families and fans for bearing with them during this testing time, and all wish each other the best in their future endeavours.
