A bit about Gypsy Dave Smith

A veteran of the dobro blues guitar, (The Dobro was invented by Jozef Dopyera to amplify the guitar by means of a resonator before the advent of electrical amplification and subsequently became the instrument of choice amongst Bluesmen ) he left Australia for the life of Robert Johnson in his 20's, (30 years ago) with a 1933 Dobro earned from soul. His amazingly authentic picking style recalls the hard travelling' days of Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Mississippi John Hurt, in every note and timber, and steered his journey half way round the world from Newcastle Australia to find his soul mate, family and musical home in Newcastle UK. On visiting The Highlands with Martin Stephenson (long time collaborator and traveling partner) in the early 80's he set about finding new fans (and lost family) in Scotland, including regular returns for events like the Highland Festival, where in 1998 he headed up a steel guitar review called "Shining Like a National Steel Guitar". In the same year he was invited to take part in the Jozef Dopyera Festival in Slovakia to celebrate the Inventor of the Resonator Guitar and 90th anniversary of the innovative instrument. More recently he's become a regular and musician in residence at The Belladrum Festival in The Highlands.

Now a regular on a great many other profile European Festivals, in addition he is a musician and character of renown to many venues around the Toon and around the rest of the Blues community of the UK.

Gypsy Dave Smith says "I'm a long time fan of Paul Barrere's style and Little Feats songwriting, I got to open for Paul and Fred in Newcastle last year and jumped at the chance to play with them again and return to Scotland on this tour, I can't wait

Hi Dave
Do you by any chance know of any house concert hosts in Northumberland/Newcastle who will host non-touring acts? We're hoping to hop across the channel in the summer and play in Europe a little, but need to try and find funds.

Love your stuff by the way! Saw you at a book opening a while back, I was busking outside. And was great when you and Martin played together.

Cheers anyway,
Dom

Hi,

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon
