Studio Guest – David Leask Sun 15th 12pm with Stewart Fenwick Celtic Country
Tune in on Sunday 15th Sept when Stewart Fenwick’s guest will be David Leask
Originally from Jedburgh, David Leask is a powerful performing songwriter, who has built an artistic bridge between the influences of his birthplace and the fresh possibilities of his adopted Canadian home to produce six critically-acclaimed CD’s. A seasoned and commanding performer, having played over 2600 gigs in the last 25 years, David’s music draws from Celtic roots, Americana and country, topped up with a pop sensibility that brings to mind the talents of Van Morrison, John Mayer and Foy Vance.
A gifted songwriting teacher, David has conducted numerous songwriting workshops at folk festivals and on behalf of the Songwriters Association of Canada with students ranging in age from 7 to 70+ and has the experience, passion and people skills to motivate any individual to write a song.
His 2013 “Underneath” CD is a former Celtic Music Radio Album of The Week, whilst his latest EP release, “Six in 6/8” has received critical acclaim internationally.
David is coming home for the next month, for a string of dates across the UK, alongside Letitia VanSant, Nathan Bell and Lizanne Knot.
Ahead of any gigs, David is coming into Celtic Music Radio on Sunday, September 15th, guesting on Celtic Country,12 Noon-2pm. Presenter Stewart Fenwick first saw David perform at a showcase in Calgary during Canadian Country Music Week, back in 2001.
