Songwriters Circle
with Matt Davis, Trevor Thomas and Dave Artus
Friday 21st October

Matt Davis is a folk singer-songwriter based in St Albans. When not looking after his two young children, Matt enjoys arranging traditional songs for guitar using a variety of tunings. He grew up listening, thanks to his parents, to the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Judy Collins, and his current influences include Kate Rusby and Martin Simpson. Occasionally writing his own songs, Matt was a finalist in Watford Folk Club’s 2021 Song Competition with the song “Trains & Boats & Planes”. You can find out more about him here:

Trevor Thomas is retired and now a keen singer/songwriter and a fine interpreter of other writers’ songs. His varied repertoire includes songs such as ‘Who Knows Where the Time Goes’, ‘Wild Rover’, ‘Sweet Caroline’ and recently ‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’ among many others.

It has been a pleasure to see Trevor develop both as a writer and performer and he has become a popular member of our club.

Dave Artus is a semi-retired IT person, originally from Bingley in Yorkshire, now living in Ruislip, West London. He has always enjoyed the singer-songwriters such as Al Stewart and Michael Chapman, and now writes some songs himself. His album “Viewpoints” was recorded with help from Dave Nachmanoff and Lukas Drinkwater.

Well known on the local folk scene, he performs in local folk clubs and sing-arounds and at local festivals. Dave helps run the Uxbridge Folk Club.

Matt, Trevor and Dave will discuss and share their methods and inspiration between themselves and the audience and play some of their songs.

The second half will be a regular sing-around.

Our “Songwriters Circles” are always popular, and this line-up will be something special as Matt, Trevor and Dave all have distinctly different styles.

Looking forward to seeing you for what will be a fascinating evening!
