We are pleased to have back Dave Gibb, one of the most requested and popular performers at the club. This will be Dave's sixth visit to the club, and we look forward to his shows immensely.
He is a consummate guitarist, singer and songwriter and all-round entertainer. Over the years, Dave has released nine albums, including the acclaimed Avalon, Blood and Flame, Giggles and his latest, Motherload.
Hailing from Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway, Dave describes himself as a left-handed, balding, middle-aged, song-writing folky from Scotland's highest village.
Lyrically, Dave is a storyteller and troubadour, determined to maintain the art of storytelling through song. Musically, he draws on both traditional and contemporary sources, especially the finger picking styles of his heroes, and is one of the more accomplished guitarists on the folk circuit. His not too serious songs reflect his somewhat cynical view of the world and its inhabitants. As a result his songs have titles as diverse as The Leaving (about the Highland clearances) and Mentally Degoolified (about the neutering of his cat), and subjects that range from the death of John the Baptist (Caravaggio's Eyes) to what life must have been like as a chamber-pot emptier living on the banks of the Yangtze River (Better Life Next Time).
Come along. You'll enjoy this performance.
