David Ferrard in Southport

David's latest CD
Who?  That was my reaction too, I'm afraid!  David Ferrard is a young Scottish-American singer-songwriter based in Edinburgh.  I've found out that he was born to a Scottish father and an American mother, and was brought up on both sides of the Atlantic; those dual roots can be heard in his music, whether singing his own compositions or interpreting a traditional ballad or a song by Robert Burns.  His songs demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice and peace and have won him songwriting and performance competitions.

Having listened to several of his songs on his website, I'm looking forward to his gig at the Bothy Folk Club this Sunday 15 January from 8.00 p.m.  The venue is the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS, and serves real ale from Thwaites.
