And did you know that Beth and David are both artists? We have an original watercolour (Beth) and an oil (David)! Yes, both of them are sweeties.
David did a house concert for us and later down the road he sang harmony on Red-Winged Blackbird on one of my children's CDs. He is a lot of fun to work with!
I love his story-telling between songs, which are often quite a bit longer than the song itself. One of his CDs is a live concert - the one he did for Folk Alley - and that's where you hear the story-telling if you can't get somewhere to hear him live. But if he's ever in your neck of the woods, don't miss him. He's a national Canadian treasure!
It's maybe to early to say this, but.....jingle jingle....if you want to get yourself a lovely recording of familiar Christmas carols, David made a beautiful simple one called Carols for a Christmas Eve with just voice (his) and piano (Kathryn Briggs).
Kat - you named a couple of my favourite D.F. songs - but if I was forced to name my #1 fav - I'd say Highwire. But we have all of his CDS and don't tire of listening to them again and again. There are very few people who are wordsmiths like David - who can make every line sound so natural but pack so much imagery, meaning and emotion.
