RIP Simon. Thoughts to his family, his friends, and Afro Celts.
One of my best memories of afro Celts was at Glastonbury I think 97, some technical issues so they played acoustic ,so much energy,the crowd was stomping and dancing to their amazing beats , another great is in the giant festival in the sky
I had no idea, I’m so sorry and sad. Simon has been incredibly kind to me over the years, supporting me at Lush and getting me and friends into gigs. What a beautiful man of incredible talent. He will be sorely missed. Thank you Simon Emmerson. Big love always , Lucy, Maya and Malcom and Matt Xxx.
