SUNDOWN – DAVID GIBB

Festivals |
24th September 2016

Sat 24 Sep | 2.00pm
Tickets: £8 / £6

David Gibb is an award winning song writer, story teller and tallest man in Derbyshire on a mission to create great music for children and families.

At just 23 years old he’s already had his music played on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, performed at Glastonbury Festival (amongst many others), played over 400 concerts, been nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award as part of the duo ‘David Gibb & Elly Lucas’, and won the highly commended prize at the Young Story Teller of the Year competition (2011). 

Frustrated at the lack of high quality music available for children, and inspired by the strong independent children’s music movement in America, he set himself the mission of writing an album of songs aimed at families, with quality and musicianship and song writing being the focus. The result is ‘Letters Through Your Door’, a fun and exciting album and stage show packed full of catchy and toe tapping numbers.

The album features original songs as well drawing on traditional children’s song from across the world. This sublime mix is complemented by guest appearances from some of the biggest names on the British folk scene including Bella Hardy, Lucy Ward, Jez Lowe and Nancy Kerr. The themes range from the everyday to the the surreal, but whether it’s finding a dragon in your bedroom, dreaming about swimming in the sea, or simply waiting for the postman to arrive, there’s something here for everyone!
