After receiving three really warm reviews in the UK folk/traditional music press for my new solo CD (The Living Tradition magazine, fRoots, and Musical Traditions website) and a bit of encouragement from Vic Smith and Peter Shepheard, it looks like I'm heading to England in October 2009 for a brief little tour of folk clubs and the like - - my first! I'm really looking forward to it.

So, here is the itinerary so far. Would really appreciate suggestions, recommendations, etc for filling in the open dates.

Tuesday, 20 October - arrive Heathrow Airport
Wednesday, 21 October - visit singers session at Stroud w/ Rod Stradling
Thursday, 22 October - Royal Oak, Lewes
Friday, 23 October - Swindon Folk Singers Club, Swindon
Saturday, 24 October - Kirkby Fleetham Folk Club, North Yorks (40 minute spot)
Sunday, 25 October - Ryedale Folk Museum, Hutton le Hole, early afternoon show
Monday, 26 October
Tuesday, 27 October
Wednesday, 28 October - Cross Keys Folk Club, east of Manchester
Thursday, 29 October - depart from Manchester Airport

I'm happy to provide promo materials, audio, reviews, etc to any interested parties.

Many thanks Mudcatters!

Dave Ruch

If UK catters haven't heard Dave, you should. While there re a lot of American folksingers, there aren't than many singing American folk music.

Thanks Vic. I've also just put up a vocal song ("Oh! Dat Low Bridge!") with the audience joining in on the choruses, so if you'd rather use that, feel free.

Buy Dave's CD "The Oldest Was Born First". Fine stuff. Some song variants you won't hear anywhere but in the North Country of New York State. Or maybe my living room. I'll post a solid review at some point before he gets to the UK.

Hi Dave
We're looking forward to your visit at The Foresters Arms, Coatham Mundeville where you'll receive a grand North East welcome. It's a great little club with some good floor singers and musicians and run by John Snowball who has some great 'crack' so you should have a good night. Unfortunately I'm out of town till Nov so I'll miss you but will get a report on how the night went.

Dave - I'm really looking forward to doing the duet on "Sweet Georgia Brown" at the Royal Oak on 22nd. Let me know if you need an acoustic guitar for the night. Martin or Larrivée available for you if you need them.

It's good to know that we both play "Sweet Georgia" in the traditional folkies' key of F! :-)

Sorry I'll miss you in Darlington, Darlodave! The club sounds great.

Will, I'm so glad you can join me at the Royal Oak for a tune. Vic Smith has offered his guitar for the night, so I should be in good shape, though I'd love to see yours too...

Dave did an excellent set in Halifax Square Chapel tonight to a small but appreciative audience who, prior to his encore, sang him 'On Ilkley Moor B'aht 'At' (the whole thing).

A magic moment!

Magic indeed, John! I captured about a minute and a half of it on film on my cell phone. The duty manager at the theatre said something like "those Yorkshire men never sing like that."

We were in the audience at Square Chapel and really enjoyed your set. We expect YOU to sing On Ilkley Moor Without a Hat, word perfect when you come again.

My playground memory is (thought not sure if it is from my childrens era)

Happy Birthday to You
I went to the zoo
I saw a gorilla
And I thought it was you

Enjoy the rest of your tour

When I was at school, we sang:

Happy Brithday to you
You live at the zoo
You eat like a hippopotamus
And you look like one too

Not sure what that has to do with Dave Ruch, but we're expecting him here in Glossop some time today, and hope to be bringing him up to Ryburn tonite!

He'll be round in about half an hour to drop off Wendy's guitar which he's borrowed for a couple of days...... we had great fun doing a few songs with him at Ryedale Folk Museum on Sunday.

He was great at Kirkby Fleetham Folk Club on Saturday night as well (as was Ian McKone who he shared the night with).

He's been a great hit with my 8 year old son who is now very keen that we visit the US of A!!!

Another great night last night at the Foresters Arms with a seriously singing bunch! I have never met a nicer bunch of people as I have over this past week or so. Looking forward to Brian's and Ryburn tonight, and my last gig tomorrow night in Uppermill.

A piece of the event mentioned above by John Adams is now posted on YouTube, as I threatened the audience it might be, here: Singing Halifax Audience . The quality is not great, but it gives a decent sense of it. They were wonderful!

Many many thanks to (in no particular order) Vic and Tina Smith, Peter Shepheard, Rod and Danny Stradling, Brian Peters and family, Jeff Warner, Jeff Davis, Will Fly, Banjiman and Wendy and family, John Adams, Steve Tunnicliff & Mrs T, and so many others at the various clubs who helped to encourage and prepare me beforehand, feed and house me (and my wife on the first part of the trip) during, and generally make this trip an absolute delight from start to finish. It was a real treat to be over there.
