David on the BBC

We've just bought The First Set - Live From Folk Alley, having heard a track on Mike Harding's show on BBC Radio2. It's fantastic. We'd heard Annie's House... We both really, really enjoy the songs and the style of delivery, so if there's any chance of David coming the UK, we'd go out of our way to see him.
We live on Teesside (near Middlesbrough) so we could even show him some industrial landscapes! all the best. N and E

Come Rain or Come Shine

Beth…our daughter reminded me today that our son used David's song about "always being yours if you'll always be mine" [Come Rain or Come Shine] at his wedding reception. What a beautiful song, a favorite, and it's now stuck in my mind for which I am thankful.So glad to hear that he is recording yet another cd.a fan, S

Better than a bottle of Rum

I just received your new C.D. Live From Folk Alley. The best friggin thing I have ever heard. I am originally from Newfoundland but my wife and I just had to move due to the economy and the lack of jobs on the rock. We are now currently in Nunavut. Everyday is an adventure....
I just wanted to tell you that your music is the cats ass, better than a bottle of rum, skink stuff! I laughed at your stories and then I got homesick and starting bawling my eyes out. It felt good all the same, it has been a long time since I got a good snotty cry in. Thank you so much.....the music is very moving to me, good on ya! I have to go and put the wood horse in the barn, it is cold enough to skin you outside. J and A

I am almost 5 years old (feb18). My favourite song is Red Wing Blackbird. I really like your music - I've been listening to it since I was 2 years old.

Bringing in the New Year with David

We had "Skating Rink" on the CD player as we ended 2006. I've seen you play a couple of times at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and then again last year at the Capilano College theatre. What would I like to say to you? You have brought me the voice of calm and reason in the middle of a crazy world. The simplicity of your words breaks barriers that most artists can only dream of breaching. May 2007 afford you the opportunity of creative exploration that we all seek. Thank you to Beth and your family for sharing you with us. K H
