20191108: Friday 8th November: David Cambridge- Launch of his album “Songtales” with special guests including Dan Wilde, Hannah Sanders, Jenna Walker, Kelly and Wooley and The Larks.
‘Songtales’ is David’s first album having built a reputation for reducing existing songs to the bare bones of tune and rhyme and rebuilding them as fresh material. His meticulous fingerstyle playing, usually in open-tuning, opens up new possibilities for creating new harmonic and rhythmic pathways. ‘Songtales’ is about breadth. It takes a long, loving look at hundreds of years of the essential, elusive craft of spinning songs and says ‘These songs are jewels, let’s try resetting them and see if they shine a little more’. They do!
David is currently enjoying a second career as a folk singer/guitarist. Born and raised in Southeast London but now living in his name-sake city-Cambridge, he is a familiar voice (solo and as half of Cambridge and Walker) at local folk clubs/festivals and made his first public singing appearance at Cambridge Folk Club in 2012.
The album launch night at Cambridge Folk Club will see David perform all the songs from “Songtales” along with performances from his special guests including Dan Wilde, Hannah Sanders, Jenna Walker, Kelly and Wooley and The Larks.
