During the Festive two week period, we have been looking back to some of the fine 2013 Albums of the Week. On Saturday 28 December 2013, the Dave Gibb CD album called Story Song is featured. Dave talks to Ross Macfadyen about his CD Story Song, songwriting and other nonsense.
Hailing from the village of Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway, Dave, pictured in the Celtic Music Radio studio, describes himself as a left-handed, balding, middle-aged songwriting folky from Scotland’s highest village.
A superb guitarist with a style that is as distinctive as it is effective, a voice that can carry traditional and contemporary songs and a songwriting ability that produces songs ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, he is an established performer throughout the acoustic/folk club, festival and concert scene.
Lyrically Dave is a storyteller and troubadour and is determined to maintain the art of storytelling through song.
Musically he draws on both traditional and contemporary sources, especially the finger picking styles of the heroes and is one of the more accomplished guitarists on the folk circuit.
