Lindsey Simpson is a Blues musician from Hull. In 2009, Lindsey began his live music career by playing at the famous New Adelphi Club. It was here that Lindsey wowed his first audience and burst onto Hull’s local music scene with true blues fury.

Lindsey has performed on the main stages at Hull’s Freedom Festival, Filey Folk Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Cottingham Springboard Festival and MusicPort. The largest non festival venues he has performed at include Huddersfield Town Hall, Hull City Hall and Sheffield City Hall. He has supported the likes of Michael Chapman (twice), Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham, and John Tamms & Barry Coope.

During summer 2013 Lindsey had a cider named after him! Brewed by Burnards in Norfolk, “Lindsey Simpson’s Slide Blues Cider” is medium sweet and at 6% ABV really packs a punch. It has been widely available throughout the UK.

With a mix of old style blues, country and humorous lyrical content Lindsey is a hugely entertaining musician with bundles of talent. He continues to perform on an occasional basis at venues around Hull and elsewhere.
