Keeping the tradition of story in song alive

Hailing from the village of Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway Dave’s songwriting is firmly rooted in the tradition of the storyteller.

Contemporary and historical sources offer a wealth of material for songs that are performed in a style driven by his unique fingerpicking guitar playing. 

As a superb interpreter of traditional and contemporary songs his performances (whether on a folk club, concert hall or festival stage) combine all the attributes necessary for a modern day troubadour.
