Wednesday 2nd February 2022 - DAVE ELLIS & BOO HOWARD - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

FAVERSHAM FOLK CLUB
Dave Ellis & Boo Howard
7.30      Ticket Price £8 / £9


Dave Ellis came down from Liverpool for the London folk club scene in the 70’s. He released a solo album on Sonet records, which some consider to be a classic guitar record of its time and which gave him national exposure on the Old Grey Whistle Test and In Concert.
Dave became a regular at various London haunts such as the Marquee, the Roundhouse and the Lyceum and also played some higher profile gigs, opening for the Edgar Broughton Band at the Rainbow and Rod Stewart at Reading Festival.
In 1979 Dave formed his electric band ‘The Reactors’ which incorporated guitar, drums and keyboards with Boo Howard playing bass and handling most of the vocals.
The band was eventually trimmed down and developed into an electric duo (comprising Dave and Boo) which was renamed ‘Brave Lucy’, and the pair produced their only electric album ‘Snaps’ in 1996 under that name
In 1998 they combined Dave’s intricate guitar work with Boo’s mellow vocals to create something very different and entirely new in the folk and acoustic clubs. Their debut acoustic recording was ‘Maybe I Might Fall’ in 1999.
The songs are intelligently constructed, elegantly articulated and never less than entertaining. The mix is eclectic (from folk to jazz to blues to bluegrass) but 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.

Their CDs have a classy polished sound - testament to the pair’s familiarity with the recording process and of their ability to write and perform at a level every bit the equal of their major label peers.
Their live act has now been honed to perfection in the folk clubs where they have developed a large faithful following in the south of England.
