SIMON FINN + NANCY WALLACE + CHRIS FLORY

9th May 2012


An arts centre favourite - Simon Finn is an English psych folk musician.

Finn was born in 1951 in Surrey, moved to London in 1967, where his first performance was opening for Al Stewart at the Marquee Club in Soho. He released his Pass the Distance LP in 1970, which in later years attained legendary status as it was so hard to obtain. The album featured contributions from Rob Buckin, Paul Burwell, Ken Elliot, and David Toop. “Pass the Distance” was remastered and re-released on Durtro/Jnana records in 2004 and again in 2008 on vinyl by Mayfair Music. In the same year, after a thirty-five year absence from the music scene, he began touring again. His first performance was in support of the band Current 93 at St George the Martyr Church in Toronto in June 2004. Since then he has performed in Moscow, Athens, Glasgow, Barcelona, New York, Chicago and many other cities around the world. His second album, Magic Moments, was released by Durtro/Jnana in June 2005.

Simon Finn has played shows with Current 93, Graham Coxon, Thurston Moore, Antony and the Johnsons and more.
