Dave Simpson

Dave Simpson Trio

“This is one of the best guitars I have ever played. I haven’t put it down since I got it and don’t intend to for a long time”.

Dave Simpson from Louth, Lincolnshire first picked up the guitar at age 17 and started playing live 6 months after he learnt his first few songs. He has played in various bands of varying genres throughout the years but mainly performs in the group the Dave Simpson Trio which has been going for 7 years. Dave’s guitar style and sound has its roots firmly planted in the late 60s British Blues sound and he owes much of his playing style to Jimi Hendrix with his use of feedback, dive bombs and a head down aggressive approach to the blues. He mainly improvises live and Dave puts this down to getting very quickly bored of playing the same thing over and over and has to stretch out and see where he can take the music instead of it just being the same every night. This leads to every Trio show being different and the audience always get something new.
