Dave is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. I learned "Field of the Willows" from him. It's on my last CD. (Not latest, last)

This is a cd I need to have. The earlier versions of these songs were both entertaining and enjoyable; this cd is a welcome extension. And would you look at the line-up of musicians? Thanks for the the thread, Effsee.

Very nice, Dave. This news rates a taste of Aberlour; To your health!

Dave's railway songs are unique in the working detail and social insight that only a man who worked his time on the footplate could give. And unlike the attempts of many others the technical detail doesn't jar - the whole thing works as a record of railway history, social history and wonderfully executed song

The long narrow shovel, the lengthman, the pockets full of coal, the sheep with the smouldering back, the detonators banging on the line. Not from Dave bland lines of 'freight train freight train going so fast' or 'the rock island line is a mighty fine line'

Ewan McColl tried and failed to entwine railway operation with song in his railway ballad for radio. Only Dave Goulder made it work so brilliantly and with footplate humour to boot

Proud to say I have Requiem on vinyl :-) (as well as both railway cds) and I have had over thirty years pleasure from it since I picked it up in Dobells in London

What I would like to know though is how do you get that well connected that you get Maddy Prior to play spoons for you !

Well, as stated on Mudcat, Dave is doing a long overdue mini tour in August 2009, centred around a booking at Broadstairs FF.
He is doing a few other gigs, and I have spoken to a couple of other clubs, to see if they might give him a booking as well.
Unfortunately August isn't a good time for bookings, as quite a few close down for that month.
I will find out the dates he has booked so far, and if anyone can offer him another one or two, they can contact him directly, using the details on his site, that is linked above.

Booked so far


Aug 8th - Elsie's
Aug 10,11 12 - Broadstairs
Aug 16 - Sarah Morgan arranging local gig


They will be driving down and back, so a booking en route would be a good idea too.

As I said contact Dave, or me if you need to. He will be away next week, so if you need to get hold of him, don't worry if you get no reply then.

Dave will also be in the North East of England in May next year. He is at 'The Welly' in Wolviston on Thursday May 21st, at Ryedale Folk Weekend on 22nd - 24th May (the late bank holiday) and at The Britannia in Darlington on Tuesday 26th. When I've worked out how, I'll put a 'blue clickey' to the Ryedale weekend site!

Big fan.

I have "Requiem", on vinyl too.

Still sing it too, when it's appropriate in one of my programs.

Thanks Nutty. I knew someone would help! Ryedale weekend was very enjoyable this year, and Dave was the highlight of the weekend for me, so I am really looking forward to next year's festival.

Hi Fidjit - that's two then - anyone else? I wonder how many were pressed? - Ah it were all different in them days son - no computers so that any tom dick or harry can burn a cd

My favourite on a disc of favourites is the Footplate Song - the life of thousands of men in a nutshell - and it could so easily have been Dave's

Thought I'd just renew this, as it would be nice if we could find another couple of bookings for Dave.

Update to my 13th November post

Booked so far

Aug 6th - Maidenhead Folk Club
Aug 8th - Elsie's
Aug 10,11 12 - Broadstairs
Aug 16 - Sarah Morgan arranging local gig


They will be driving down and back, so a booking en route would be a good idea too.

Contact Dave if you can offer him a complementary booking that fits in with these dates.
