Friends of Wighton Cappuccino Concerts: Bruce Davies

Bruce lives in Glenrothes in Fife, on the east coast of Scotland, about 20 miles from St. Andrews, the “Home of Golf.”

He is a singer whose style is very accessible, yet unique, blending the words and melodies of Scotland and beyond with harmonic influences that betray his Welsh ancestry. His love of the great folk songwriters of the 60’s to the present day is also apparent in his presentation and choice of music and his warm, rich voice and sympathetic 6 & 12 string acoustic guitar technique have received much critical acclaim.

A former winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Folk Club Song-writing competition, Bruce was known for many years as an interpreter of great songs by great writers. However, his own songs now sit happily alongside those of “the greats” in his performances.

His enthusiasm for the works of Robert Burns, his knowledge and ability to express the history and music of Scotland as it relates to the rest of the world (particularly North America), combined with his witty introductions and friendly manner, make him a complete performer.
