DAVE ELLIS AND BOO HOWARD

Their story began in the 70s when a very young Dave left Liverpool and headed to London with his guitar. He released a solo album in 1973, which was rated as a classic acoustic guitar record of its time. This led to touring with his hero Bert Jansch as well as achieving national exposure on shows such as The Old Grey Whistle Test and In Concert.

Dave formed an electric band called ‘The Reactors’ in 1979. Boo joined on bass and vocals and the two became a solid songwriting team. In the early 2000s Dave and Boo developed an acoustic act which returned them to their folk club roots. Their debut album as a duo, Maybe I Might Fall, was critically acclaimed and featured a simple acoustic performance. Several albums have been recorded since then, from 2002’s Amber through to Great Pleasure in 2018. The songs are intelligently constructed, elegantly articulated and never less than entertaining, drawing on influences from both the folk world and the rock scene they were involved in for so long.

The songs are at the heart of it all, served by imaginative and stylish arrangements and by the singing and playing of two seasoned, wholly in-tune musicians.  They translate the ambitious playing, singing and songwriting of their studio recordings seamlessly into their live performances, so that whether they are playing at a large festival or a more intimate folk club the audience feels involved and part of a special event.
