Jessica Lawson & Phil Simpson

Previously natives of Cumbria but now residing in East Yorkshire, Jessica Lawson & Phil Simpson sing and accompany themselves on autoharp, acoustic guitar, mandolin and melodeon. Their original songs reflect a background in folk music and a love of Americana; singing stories about the sea, love, loss, and a few ‘fallen’ women.  

The duo’s notoriety on the folk scene took hold when Jessica’s debut EP, Molly of the Tyne, was released in 2011 on Paper Plane Records. They have been in demand at festivals and concerts across the UK and Europe ever since and their reputation continues to grow. Jessica and Phil have performed a number of high profile and exciting shows, alongside Eddi Reader, Cara Dillon and Barbara Dickson to name but a few. 

Jessica Lawson and Phil Simpson are appearing for one night only at The Roundhouse Theatre, for what will be a very special and intimate performance. See them on YouTube
