Simon Kempston last played Ulverston Sports Club six years ago. I can't believe we have left it so long to get him back. In those six years Simon has developed a huge following in Germany and Switzerland.
Simon Kempston himself is as unassuming as they come; he possesses a kind of laid back charisma and old school charm that entirely suit his style of music and underplays the genius that is his musical talent. It is clear that the guitar he plays has been with him all his life it is like an extension of his arm.
The set he plays is a mixture of song, classical and instrumental music, and is entirely acoustic. Two guitars make an appearance, as do several knowing smiles as his audience laugh with his easy humour. His set is punctuated with openly honest stories of his life as an artist and the beautiful and varied inspirations for his songs.
This is a show with more than just music. But the music at its heart is sensational in the most literal sense.
