Dave Swarbrick 1941-2016
A more personal picture this week. Fairport Convention were one of many bands that provided the soundtrack to my teenage years. In those days we would gather at the house of the friend whose parents had the best stereo system and listen to records for hours on end. Dave Swarbrick was a tremendously influential English fiddle player and songwriter who worked with many of the great names of folk and beyond. RIP Swarb.
