Dave Steel at Basement Discs

Today’s In-Store performance at Basement Discs featured Dave Steel, a local singer/songwriter and master musician. He was peforming songs off his latest CD, Blues & Ballads.

They sounded pretty good. Dave has a great voice for the Blues and can play Blues guitar with the best of them. He is much in demand as a guitarist, but has a solid solo career as well.

I have seen him perform many times before, so it was, as usual, a good way to spend the lunch hour with fine musical entertainment.

I must admit Dave Steel is looking a little older these days. Apparently the last year has been hard on him with death in the family and the suicide of a close friend. One of the songs “Goodbye Traveller” on his new CD was written as a tribute to this friend.
