In Memoriam Davy Steele – Singer, Song-writer, Instrumentalist
“We keep the music going”. How often has that simple principle heartened us in adversity. With his characteristic warmth and pawky good humour Davy Steele kept the music going throughout his life… and well beyond. His lively performances, culminating in his stint with the Battlefield Band, and his own poignant songs of weal and woe (the haunting “Summerlee” album, for example) will ring in our ears for generations to come.
I am priviledged to have collaborated with Davy in this series. His inimitable tracks on vols. 4 and 5 – “My love is like a red, red, rose”; “John Barleycorn”; “Robin Shure in hairist”; etc. – are classics in their kind.
