Album Notes
Dave who? you may well ask.........Well - armed with a style of guitar playing that is best described as being 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 has now established himself as a regular performer throughout the acoustic/folk club, festival and concert scene.

Having realised that he was never going to be the new Tony Iommi (of Black Sabbath fame) Dave drew his early inspiration as a guitarist from such 'heroes' as Paul Simon, Tom Paxton, Richard Thompson, Bert Jansch anyone - who plays acoustic guitar - and continues to pick up influences from more contemporary players.

His playing has evolved into a sound and style that is all his own. Bluesy, folky, jazzy or straightforward headdownandbuggerthesubtlety fingerpicking styles are all in evidence.

And as for the songs......Lyrically Dave's songrwrting is rooted firmly in the traditions and history of Scotland and its people. Musically he draws on both traditional and contemporary sources, especially the fingerpicking styles of the heroes (see above).

Avalon Found
What is there to say about Dave, well, he comes from Scotlands highest village and he plays guitar like an angel. The guitar playing, the lyrics and his gutsy voice send this cd into orbit, it is full of brilliant tracks. There's something for everyone, my personal favourites are James of the Glen, Fly and the sensational Blue Blue Stone, in fact there isn't a weak track on the album. If you want to buy a Dave Gibb cd, buy this one because you won't be disappointed and once you've heard it you'll be back for the rest. I've heard Dave play some of these tracks live and it is a real treat, go see him if he's in your area.
