Simon Finn is an English psychedelic folk musician.

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.
