On Monday 11 April 2011, the 10th anniversary of singer-songwriter Davy Steele’s death, Celtic Music Radio will be playing Davey’s songs thoughout the day.
Davy Steele is one of Scotland’s best loved singers and songwriters. His interpretations of traditional Scottish songs and his own compositions have become classics, reflecting his sensitivity to the human situation. He was also renowned for his charismatic and ebullient nature. Davy could always be relied upon to ‘get the party started’.
In 2011, the 10th anniversary year of his death, his second wife, Patsy Seddon, began a wide-ranging project to celebrate Davy’s life and music, including a concert at Celtic Connections 2011 and a CD on Greentrax Recordings. Both are entitled Steele The Show and involve many of Davy’s favourite singers and musicians. The Steele The Show CD can be purchased here.
Davey Steele Day from 8.00am until 12 midnight on Monday 11 April 2011 on Celtic Music Radio.
