Dave has seemed to be an elemental spirit of Australian Folk (Bush) Music for longer than most of us care to recall. Any performance is a lesson in the art ... and he can coax 'real music' out of almost anything that plunks, squeaks or hums!
Dave de Hugard’s intimate relationship with folk music now spans four decades with no sign of decline. During the recording of his latest album, ‘Songs of the Wallaby Track’, Dave has involved himself intensely with each facet and nuance of the recording process as collector, writer, arranger, sound engineer, digital wave editor, all vocals and 95.7% of the instruments. Each of the selected songs, yarns and tunes possess a fine balance of authenticity, individual taste, familiarity and respect and demonstrate a rare understanding that can only be acquired during many years of collecting and performing folk songs. His new album marks another milestone in the maturity of Australian folk music (Graham H Dodsworth. MA Australian Folklore).
