RIP – Dave Swarbrick

June 6, 2016

The great Dave Swarbrick has died.

Legendary folk musician and a leading light in the folk environment.

Probably known to many through his work with Fairport Convention, but he contributed in so many other ways.He pioneered the electric fiddle in English folk.

Here is Fairport’s classic Liege and Leaf album with Swarbs, Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson as part of the superb line-up.
