BROMSGROVE Folk Club welcomes the Wizard of Wanlockheid, aka Dave Gibb, tomorrow (Thursday).
Dave has a warm earthy voice that lends itself to a diverse handful of traditional and contemporary covers as well as his own narrative-based material, inspired either by real events or his inquisitive imagination.
His vocals are all accompanied by a fine, restive, fluently nimble, acoustic guitar style based on the finger-picking styles of the heroes that is alternately bluesy, folky, jazzy or straight forward.
Lyrically Dave is a storyteller who is determined to maintain the art of storytelling through song.
Musically he draws on both traditional and contemporary sources and his rapport with his audience is second-to-none as he alternates the music with plenty of anecdotal, variously tall tales and occasionally ribald banter.
Dave has numerous CDs to his credit and is a former winner of the Danny Kyle Open Stage Award at Celtic Connections.
Bromsgrove Folk meets at Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, Catshill, Bromsgrove.
No membership is necessary.
The doors are open from 7.30pm and the music starts at 8pm.
