Press Release

The much-anticipated new CD from folk musician Davy Lees has a blend of traditional, contemporary and self-penned songs and tunes.

The CD, One of Those Days, is a showcase of Davy’s musical talent. The title track is a humourous look at life when Murphy’s Law comes into play, while Hector the Hero, Black is the Colour and Los Companeros are tracks to enjoy whilst relaxing after a hard day. High energy tracks such as Was It You, Close it Down and The Ballad of St Annes Reel will have you dancing around the room. This CD is a must have for any collection of folk recordings.

Davy has extensive experience in the music industry. He hails from the Lanarkshire steel town of Motherwell where, during the late ‘70s, he was a member of the well-respected Auld Howff Band in which he provided vocals, as well as playing both the guitar and flute. He is indeed a former Scottish Amateur Flute Champion and started his musical career when he was just ten years old. He has toured Europe extensively and has played at Orkney and Shetland Festival, Le Triskel Festival in Breste, Roe Valley Festival in Ireland as well as at Ballerup Festival in Denmark and as far afield as Malasia.

Davy is a very accomplished performer and storyteller with a vast repertoire of songs ranging from traditional Scottish, including many Robert Burns compositions, to popular contemporary folk standards. His television appearances include ITV’s Secret Scotland. His radio broadcasts include Moray Firth Radio’s All Scottish, and the hugely-popular Strings and Things which he presented on Radio Avon FM. His latest radio appearance was on Celtic Music Radio where he started the very successful programme Strings & Things with Davy Lees with listeners from all over the world and the plan is to present this programme for a period of time every year.
