1968 Played guitar at end of school concert.
Bought an acoustic guitar and was gigging solo in folk clubs
including The Boggery with Jasper Carrot, Billy Connolly, Mike
Harding, Max Boyce.
I used to go out under the name of Dave Owen
till Jasper took the mick so much I decided to use my own
Did a midlands mini tour supporting Jasper mainly Civic Halls plus
The Rep in Birmingham
Joined a Reggae band and loved it, but also got the sack from the
Formed Crossfire - a rock band for a couple of years, got on the
radio with a couple of songs, got runners up in a competition that
Ian Gillan from Deep Purple was judging.
Went back to doing solo folk gigs.
Played in a variety of Country Music bands - Saguaro, Marshall
Peavey, Baretta, The Hat Band. Always loved country music.
Played the Birmingham Town Hall with The Hat Band and got a video to
Duo with Nigel Bullock from 1998 - 2010
folk/blues/country/bluegrass. Recorded 2 albums. Always good fun and
Decided to go solo again and to do some writing and started teaching
Although I am currently (2015) writing
and performing solo, I'm still very interested in joining a band with that groove/feel, please also
drop me a line if you think I have what you might be looking for and you think I might fit in.
I'm serious about the music side of things being the best they can
be on stage, but love having a laugh too
