ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dave Gibb is a singer of songs and a teller of tales from the hills of Dumfries & Galloway in Scotland who happily fingerpicks his way through life’s travails.
Songs funny or sad, happy or grim, meaningful or meaningless played fast or slow (sometimes both at the same time)…….He likes a giggle.

"The man is a left handed guitarist who can make others feel like giving up. Dave is now gaining the recognition he deserves all over Britain. Sometimes humorous and sometimes wistful or sad but never dull...that's Dave." (Falkirk Folk Club)

Dave's tenth album Galena tells the story of a ten year old boy who is sent down the lead mines to, in his father's words, pay his way at the beginning of the nineyeenth century.
It is set in three parts - 1) his first day down the mine 2) he meets the Auld Yin (Scottish for old one) who becomes a mentor to him and 3) he looks back on his life as a lead miner.
