Happy St Andrew’s Day. Happy Advent. Support Independent Music

Hello all,

And a happy St Andrew’s Day to one and all, wherever you are reading this in the world be sure to raise a dram to the Auld Country. And as the first Sunday of Advent was yesterday, then may I also wish you the very best for the coming Festive Season.

As you are reading this, you will hopfefully be interested to know that the Simon Kempston shop is fully stocked for Christmas, and what better gift to give this year than the gift of music, whilst simultaneously supporting independent artists in the process.

What’s more the shop is stocked with Christmas wrapping paper too, if you specify when ordering that it is a Christmas gift then yours truly will gift wrap the music, and include a personalised message of your choosing, as you wish.

Please visit here  to order my brand new album, though, of course, bear in mind many other titles are available also. I’ve been delighted with the response from you, my lovely audience, many of whom have been clamouring for me to make an album like this for over a decade, who would have thought it would have taken a global pandemic for me to make a solo acoustic record?

Huge thanks to Jim Gellatly and Amazing Radio for playing the lead-off single and title track ‘Hand On My Heart’ 28 times in the past few weeks, and also for Auntie Liz Clark for playing both ‘Hand On My Heart’ and ‘All For The Love Of You’ on her Celtic Music Radio show, listen again here scroll down to Travels with my Auntie, my songs are about 16 minutes in). Thanks also to Horse McDonald and the team at the Iain Anderson show on BBC Radio Scotland for also playing ‘Hand On My Heart’, I’m around 1.51.40 in here.

Spread the word if you can, there’s no touring for the foreseeable future unfortunately, so if you’re reading this, why not tell a friend, introduce them to my music, or better still give them the gift of music this Christmas?

I like going to the Post Office these days, it makes me happy – so make me happy and send me to the Post Office!!

All the very best, as always.
