playing singer/songwriter Dave Robb was born in Edinburgh,
but has had homes in many cities, and he is currently living
and writing in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Playing bazouki, Dave was an original member of the folk band
Rua, with whom he made an album 'Rua' (1986) and played as
far afield as New Zealand and Australia. He later toured with
the Proclaimers and supported Christy Moore, gaining a reputation
as Scotland's bazouki-playing bard.
In 1989 he appeared on The Roke, an album by a group of Edinburgh
musicians led by the then Waterboys member Colin Blakely.
In 1990 Dave appeared with his band The Filmmakers at the
Reading festival. From 1998-93 Dave and the Filmmakers were
regulars at the Edinburgh Summer Festival. Their debut album,
'Capture an Image', was released in 1991.
Dave spent most of the nineties living and performing in Berlin,
returning to Scotland to promote Prussian Blue with appearances
at Celtic Connections in Glasgow and on several Radio Scotland
Shows together with Colin MacFarlane.
Since moving to Belfast in 1999, Dave has been carving out
a growing presence on the Irish songwriters' scene. In December
2004 he showcased songs from his new album 'Star in the Morning'
on Ardan, TG4's acclaimed tv music and chat show.
The new songs are lyrically and musically his strongest to
date - explorations of the soul taking you on a journey through
lost love, parenthood and new beginnings.
