Music - A Way of life - Davie Anderson
Music was always in the family home and the old piano was a focal point in the house. Davie’s Mother, Barbara, played the piano, was a member of Garnock Valley Choir and later involved in music circles in South Ayrshire. He was inspired at an early age and the tunes of Caledonia lit a flame which burns to this day.
His real introduction was while recuperating after a serious road accident at the age of 13, when a friend of the family, the late Donald Johnstone, a wonderful spirited gentleman, handed in an old Spanish guitar with 2 strings on it…from there he never looked back and was encouraged by the family in all music possibilities.
Very soon bands were formed when teaming up with local musicians and he was entertaining from an early age, and various musical pursuits followed.
The new album is called “Love So Strong” and features no less than seven original compositions.
He has recorded a large amount of music over the years and now has plans to compile the back catalogue .
He mixes Folk, Americana, Rockabilly & Blues on acoustic, electric guitar, Bass and E-bow.
His influences are as varied as Big Country, Buddy Holly and Robert Burns and his taken his music to USA, Germany, Ireland and Northern Spain.
