Lester Simpson is a folk singer and radio presenter on BBC Local Radio in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.[1] He features in the three-piece folk group Coope, Boyes and Simpson, and on the Folkwaves radio program with Mick Peat.

The Belper Folk Club was a favourite with Lester in the early/mid 1970s. As a "Floor Singer" in this excellent venue, he learned skills which he later developed with his fellows in Coope, Boyes and Simpson.
