One of the Lamb Folk Club highlights has been a captivating performance by Dave Ellis and Boo Howard and they make a welcome return to the club on Wednesday August 19.

Although originally from Liverpool, Dave developed his musical ideas in the London folk circuit culminating in the release of his eponymous debut album on Sonet Records in 1973.

This is still regarded as a classic acoustic guitar record and gave him national exposure on The Old Grey Whistle Test and In Concert. He became a regular at London haunts such as The Lyceum and The Roundhouse, and higher profile appearances included opening for Rod Stewart at The Reading Festival.

The present partnership with Boo Howard was formed in 1998 with the idea of creating something entirely original for folk and acoustic clubs. With Dave’s intricate guitar work and Boo’s bass and bluesy vocals, their intelligently constructed, elegantly articulated songs are never less than entertaining and cleverly mix folk, blues, jazz and bluegrass influences.

They will be featuring songs from their latest CD, ‘Eye On The Sky’, again a wonderful example of their masterful songwriting and performance skills.

All are welcome, the music starts at 8pm and admission is £6 on the door with students and under 16s half price. Enquiries to 01323 728268.
