Dave will often perform using a range of instruments including vocals, stompbox, acoustic guitar and live looping. He has won praise from modern day folk heroes and has featured frequently on the BBC performing original songs. As a soloist, he is ready to perform for any event, be it wedding, engagement party, birthday bash, anniversary, garden party or corporate function.
