Lanarkshire singer Davy Lees takes on the Sunday 6.00pm slot vacated by fellow singer-songwriter Ciaran Dorris who is taking a sabatical from Celtic Music Radio.
This Sunday, 25 May, will be Davy’s first ‘Strings & Things’ programme and promises a variety of music plus FB chat.
Davy is a milti-instrumentalist, playing guitar, flute, whistle. He was a member of the well respected Auld Howff Band in the 1970s, with Celtic Music Radio’s Gordon Hotchkiss.
As well as keeping busy with Haggerdash, Day Lees also plays solo and is a member of Lanarkshire Songwriters and Glasgow Songwrite plus he is a music tutor in schools with young children across Fife.
Davy and Danish-born Eva Christiansen found love was ‘in the air’ and first got in touch with one another through their interest in folk music and programmes on Celtic Music Radio proved to be an online connection to the couple eventually meeting, falling in love and deciding to tie the knot.
“Without Celtic Music Radio there is no way we could have possibly met and there would have been no wedding,” says Davy who is from Motherwell, Lanarkshire. Eva, whose 21-year-old son, Phillip gave her away at Motherwell Register Office in October 2013, agrees.
Strings & Things with Davy Lees, Sunday 25 May 6.00 to 8.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
