Please note this concert is not being held on our usual Sunday afternoon spot.

David Hyams is one of Western Australia's most accomplished composers, producers, and multi - instrumentalists. Playing acoustic, electric and steel guitars, as well as mandolin, bass and bouzouki, he has performed in a wide range of musical styles, from blues, rock and country to the progressive folk of popular WA acts Devils on Horseback, The Press Gang and Reel to Reel.

A respected session guitarist and producer, David is known for his work with a range of Western Australian singer songwriters, including Lynn Hazelton, Lara Stephen and Bernard Carney. He has also worked as sideman to a number of international artists, and in early 2005 toured Australia and Ireland with acclaimed Irish performer Sean Keane.

In 2000, David emerged as a composer and artist in his own right with the release of his critically acclaimed debut "Miles To Go". The 13 track instrumental album attracted considerable radio airplay across Australia and a string of great reviews at home and abroad (read reviews). Live performances by his 7 piece "Miles To Go band" followed, the band soon becoming a festival favourite and nominated 3 times for a West Australian Music Industry Association (WAMI) award. In October 2005, he released his follow up album, "Knowing the Place".

David has had a long involvement with WA indigenous musicians, including Peter Brandy from Kununurra, Kerriane Cox and the Young Guns (Wyndham). He has worked on a number of projects with Aboriginal and regional communities.
