Rob Naylor Dave Swarbrick - was he really that good (29) RE: Dave Swarbrick - was he really that good 29 May 19

Anne Lister: He was also a very generous performer in his support for and praise for other musicians.

Absolutely. A few years ago I (very reluctantly, and only because there was a shortage of players - most people had come to listen) did a floor spot at a Swarb gig in Tonbridge. I sang "Banks of the Sweet Primroses" and accompanied myself on octave mandolin.

I raised my game somehow from its usual low mediocre to normal medicore, but according to others Swarb was sitting at the back of the room tapping his foot and singing softly along to the song. Afterwards he came up to me and made a point of saying "that was a really nice version of one of my favourite songs - I enjoyed it a lot". Which made my day (even though he was "just being nice").
