David Evison has been a member of the Christchurch Folk Club since arriving in Christchurch in 2008. He has been folking around since the 1960s in Wellington, the 1970s in Christchurch (anyone remember the Victorian Coffee Lounge?), the 1980s in Rotorua (Neck of the Woods Folk Club), the 1990s and 2000s at Auckland (the Bunker!)
Enjoys going to Folk Festivals and sleeping in a tent. This has been known to cause amusement in some quarters, but what a brilliant way to get the most music out of a weekend in some paddock somewhere.
David plays guitar and mandolin, and sings. He enjoys singing in the Christchurch City Choir (most difficult music imaginable, and very good for the tonsils), Monday night sessions at the Pegasus Arms (always a good night), and the occasional celidh. Will try anything once, as long as it involves music. Always enjoys playing at the Folk Club – the outrageously supportive audience deserves a round of applause.
David will be accompanied by John Syme on bass, and some other musician friends to create an evening of enjoyable entertainment.
