Lindsey Simpson is a blues musician from Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire. He began his live music career by playing at the world famous Adelphi Club. It was here that Lindsey wowed the audience and burst onto the local music scene with true blues fury.
Lindsey is an eccentric stage performer with fantastic crowd control. His way of performing often results with him on his knees in the middle of crowds or standing on bar stools and chairs during songs. He has performed on the main stage at Hull’s Freedom festival, Hull Folk Festival, Filey Folk Festival, Beverley folk festival, Beverley Blues Festival, Cottingham Springboard festival and Music Port world music festival to name just a few.
He has also supported Ali Bain, Phil Cunningham, Michael Chapman, John Tamms, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas and Florence and the Machine among many other high profile musicians.
Lindsey has even had a cider named after him, “Lindsey Simpson’s Slide Blues Cider”, that is available for your delectation throughout Yorkshire and most beer and cider festivals. The origins of the cider and how it came about can be read about in more detail on the “Cider” page on this website.
His song writing captures audiences and has them listening intently to the many stories that are contained within his personal blend of old style blues, folk and country. With his entertaining stage antics and fantastic music, Lindsey is fast becoming one of the UK’s most entertaining musicians and is not worth missing if you’re ever given the opportunity.
