Simon Kempston in the Bay View Room

Simon Kempston on Quadra Island at the Heriot Bay Inn

Simon Kempston is ‘one of Scotland’s best songwriters’ (The Sunday Herald) and leading fingerstyle guitarists. 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 Kempston is performing in the Bay View Room at the Heriot Bay Inn on Monday July 29. Simon Kempston's performance is "admission by donation". Show seating for the event is at 6:30.... if you'd like to enjoy a meal before the show, please call 250.285.3322 to reserve.

An award-winning songwriter and an inspiring, poetic lyricist, Simon’s songs are amongst the most thought-provoking you are likely to hear, often sidestepping the usual themes of love and attraction in favour of offering social commentary and an insight into the everyday lives of people. His love of Celtic landscape coupled with his travels abroad, particularly in Eastern Europe, have also influenced many of his lyrics. Fascinations with architecture and English literature from a young age have created a distinct and unique lyrical style.

Simon’s first full-length album ‘Carefree Prisoner’ was released in 2009 to rave reviews nationwide by the music press and radio stations alike. Six further successful and acclaimed albums later, Simon has embraced a range of different instrumentation and styles, whilst retaining his undeniable gift for creating songs of the highest quality. Simon has also released three albums of instrumental guitar pieces, atmospheric offerings influenced heavily by his classical guitar training but also blending the folk-blues-baroque style for which he has become known, and has also recorded under the name ‘Man Gone Missing’, an alternative blues act with which he has composed, recorded and released two critically acclaimed albums.
