Ahh the glamour, the non stop excitement... this is us seeing how many instruments we can get into a Skoda's boot in between a couple of gigs up north this last weekend.
Thanks to everyone (especially Nick & Chris) at the Raven FC in Chester on Sunday for making us so welcome. We really enjoyed ourselves. Hope your festival goes well in a couple of weeks time.
We had a really great time last night with all the lovely folk at Riverfolk in Lechlade, Glos. Some very talented local singers at this club who gave up a lot of their playing time to become a very appreciative audience. Thanks to Jay and Ray and everyone there - see you again we hope...
Thanks to everyone who came to our album launch for 'Eye In The Sky' last Sunday at Hitchin Folk Club. We really enjoyed ourselves and got our new set of songs well and truly under way. It was great to see so many old friends.

Liz Simcock's set was something entirely new for us and it was a real joy to play someone else's inspirational music. We'll be doing a lot more gigs with Liz in the coming year, so watch out!
ALBUM LAUNCH! of 'Eye On The Sky'
A special Easter Sunday gig on 31st March at 8pm
at Hitchin Folk Club, Sun Hotel, Sun St, Hitchin, Herts SG51AF View Google Map to this gig
Tonight we launch our sixth album 'Eye on the Sky'.
This will be the first time you'll be able to get your hands on a copy at a gig...
We'll be starting the evening at 8.15pm with one 70 min set playing songs from the album. We'll be sharing the evening with Liz Simcock as we have many times before at Hitchin and had some wonderful nights here.
This one will be slightly different as we'll also be playing as Liz's backing band for her set at about 9.40.
Should be a special night and we really hope you can come if you're anywhere nearby!
'Eye on the Sky' album launch will be on Easter Sunday (March 31st) at Hitchin Folk Club. Hope you can come! If not you can now buy the CD online (see below)...
A trip through our new 2013 album 'Eye on the Sky', which takes you on a ride through the planet of Dave and Boo: an eclectic mix of folk, blues, jazz, bluegrass, atmospheric ballads, pastiche show tunes, ragtime... and more!
Some people will remember 'Eye on the Sky' as a song that defined Dave and Boo in their band days. Others from even further back might remember 'Silly Me & Silly You' from Dave's set in the 70's but rearranged and revisited with a great vocal from Boo.
All the other tunes are brand new and all the material is original with a variance of style that defies description. Go on... take the trip!
Available now! Click here to buy it online
Our new album is called 'Eye On The Sky' and will be available within the next month. We're putting the finishing touches to it today before mastering and the track listing is as follows:
Any Month of Any Year
Silly Me & Silly You
Me & Angie
The Skerryvore Light
Eye On The Sky
Fun Before We Die
On My Side
Come & Let Me Take Your Hand
All these tunes are our own and a lot of them will be familiar to anyone who has seen us at a gig in the last year or so. Keep an 'eye on the shop!'.. it will be on there as soon as we have it.
A couple of very enjoyable gigs this week: St Neots FC last Tuesday and a sell out at Fourth Friday in Covent Garden last night. Thanks to everyone who braved the snow and came out and helped us have such a good time.
We keep meaning to take a picture of the audience when we do a gig but we keep forgetting! Next one as it stands at the moment is Hitchin FC on Easter Sunday (March 31st) where our new CD 'Eye On The Sky' will be available for the first time. It will also be the first time we'll be doing a gig in our own right and also backing Liz Simcock for her set. Should be a night to remember. Hope you can come... please put it in your diary if you're around.
3 videos shot by Mike Watts at Twickfolk on Sunday. Excellent quality for a live gig... here's 'Siily Me & Silly You'. The other two ('Fun Before We Die' & 'Indian Country' are now on our vids page.
Thanks Twickfolk for a great gig! We were surpised by a really good turnout in Twickenham so soon after the festivities and we were made to feel really welcome. Thanks to Gerry, Paul and Sue and everyone who helps run the club. This was one of the first acoustic clubs we played 15 years ago and remains one of our favourites as the club enters its fourth decade.
Happy New Year everyone! We had a great time last year with some wonderful gigs and lots of new friends made. We can only hope the coming year will be just as positive.
2013 will see a new album from us. We still can't decide on a title but it should be out within the next 2-3 months and will feature an eclectic mix of D&B originals which we've really enjoyed recording. One or two of the tracks have demanded a lot from us, and the result is something quite different from our previous CDs, which we're very proud of.
We'll also be doing gigs with Liz Simcock as well as our own this coming year, so watch out for one of those dates (details on Liz's gig page). We've worked very hard on Liz's arrangements, harmonies etc and we're looking forward to doing it all in public for a change!
This Sunday (6th Jan) we'll be starting our own gigs rolling again at Twickfolk in Twickenham (details on our gig page). So, forget about Christmas... if you're near that gig it would be lovely to see you. We can't wait to get out there playing again!!
