Cappuccino Concert with Simon Kempston, singer songwriter and guitarist

Simon Kempston is an Edinburgh based award-winning singer-songwriter and leading acoustic fingerstyle guitarist composing and performing original and contemporary acoustic music.    Though he is a Dundee lad, Simon’s busy schedule rarely allows time for him to perform in his native city so we are especially thrilled to welcome him to the Wighton!

Simon’s original, distinctive guitar playing is founded upon a complex, finger-picking style which technically reveals his classical training yet is steeped in the history of the folk, blues and celtic traditions and is complemented by Simon’s rich, powerful and compelling clipped vocal style.

Simon has performed at many of the major venues, folk/blues clubs and festivals in Scotland, the UK and regularly tours the length & breadth of Europe. He has also performed live on BBC Radio Stations across the UK, as well as other local and specialist music radio stations.
