"Good Grief!
Scottish singer-songwriter and steel-string fingerstyle player Dave Keir began performing in the 1970s. Keir has recently resumed recording and presents twelve originals on this CD, performed solo. Surreal humor and ironic perspectives on relationships characterize his lyrics. On "Piranha," he sings, "You’re a pretty little fish, all right, with your teeth so piranha white. Owee, well, I could be with a carnivore tonight." Many of his tunes include instrumental passages that depart from the song’s verse structure; some are freewheeling enough to recall the baroque-influenced interludes in Mose Allison’s blues recordings. Keir’s influences include Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, but also Schoenberg; he writes on his website: "Blues influences and modal forms elbow each other. That can cause accidents and evidence of this provided." This music may be heard to its best advantage in live performance, however, anyone can smile at Keir’s smart observations and marvel at his musical inventions. Dave Keir’s songwriting and delivery exhibit variety seldom heard from more popular performers of any age. Listeners will be pleasantly surprised. © Patrick Ragains
