Bruce Davies — House Concert

Sunday, October 9, 2000

  Winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Folk Club Song Writing competition in 1995, this talented singer-songwriter troubadour returned to Long Island to bless us with another house concert with his brilliant mix of Scottish music, traditional Robert Burns, his own compositions, and great classic folk and pop songs. This year he even closed his superb concert with his rendition of Old Man River. Usually sung by a deep basso, Bruce's version flowed more melodically thanks to Bruce's rich baritone voice with its extraordinary range, — that filled the room and pleasured the ear.

At the party after the concert, he joined in a song swap with members that brought instruments.

 Bruce is on tour in America. Like the strolling minstrels of old, Bruce travels around to various venues, bringing his songs, stories and personality — which has been described as an "audio hug" — to audiences in his native Scotland, England, Wales, continental Europe, Africa, and the United States! He is acclaimed in his native Scotland, and his fame is growing here.
