My name is Dave Hughes, I'm a folk singer from Glasgow. I call my music Punk Rock Political Folk.
My biggest influences are Phil Ochs, Christy Moore, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash and Mischief Brew. Although, I wouldn't say I sound like any of them, well maybe a bit.
Over the last number of years that I have been doing this, I have played gigs with many wonderful artists: Frank Turner, Mischief Brew, Chris T-T, Jimbob (Carter USM), Jonah Matranga, Ricky Warwick (ex The Almighty, now with Thin Lizzy), Robert Sarazin Blake, Tom Frampton, Bomb The Music Industy, Fake Problems, Ben Marwood, Oxygen Thief, Jim Lockey & The Solumn Son, Gecko, The World Inferno/Friendship Society, Pearl and The Puppets (she supported me at a Dundee gig a few years back), Adam Boucher, Al Baker, Roscoe Vacant.
According to my website I have played over 140 gigs, all around the UK, and hoping to go to Germany in the Spring for a wee tour too.
I would love to come and play for you and your friends, if you fancy setting something up, please get in touch through this site, or email dave-at-davehughesmusic.co.uk
Look forward to hearing from you,
