Words: "Inspiring folk songs" - Rock'n'Reel Magazine
"If Gaslight Anthem got in a fight with Against Me! at a folk festival" - Wesley Shearer, Scotscribbler
"songs that are too melodic to be the traditional, if not literal definition of punk, but too ramshackle for the folk circuit." - Lisa-Marie Ferla, Last Years Girl
Dave Hughes is a folk singer, originally from just outside Glasgow but now residing in Dundee. He has been playing live for 5 years, and in this time has travelled up and down the UK many times and played with many influential acts.
In the past has played with, amongst others, Frank Turner, Chris T-T, Ricky Warwick (ex-The Almighty, now of Thin Lizzy), Jonah Matranga, and The Indelicates.
Influences are mainly the top three of Springsteen, Phil Ochs and Mischief Brew, but growing up listening to Punk rock in the form of Rancid, The Clash, The Pogues and Green Day have shaped it somewhat too.
