The Swallow Theatre


A rare chance to enjoy the unique talent of Simon Kempston

Performing thought-provoking, evocative original songs in one of Scotland’s most intimate venues. Simon’s beautifully crafted folk-tinged material showcases his incredible, distinctive and intricate fingerstyle guitar work, an exciting blend of the folk-baroque, blues and classical styles, and his gently nuanced, compelling tenor vocals. An inspiring, poetic lyricist, Simon’s live performances are intense and impassioned, the subject matter chiefly Scottish, yet with universal appeal.

‘One of Scotland’s very best singer-songwriters’ SUNDAY HERALD

Kim Ayres and Richie Hamilton

This concert was originally billed as Simon Kempston and The Cracked Man but due to unforeseen circumstances Marcus, one half of The Cracked Man, is now unable to join us for this event.

Richie Hamilton – former songwriting and playing partner with Kim (the other half of The Cracked Man) in Scruffy Buzzards – has stepped up for what promises still to be a great evening of entertainment featuring a mix of original songs from The Cracked Man, Scruffy Buzzards and possibly the odd cover song thrown in too.

Tickets : £11
