 Notes & Reviews
David Michael Gordon 'Davey' Graham (originally spelled Davy Graham) (26 November 1940 ? 15 December 2008) was born in Leicestershire, to a Guyanese mother and a Scottish father. He learnt to play the piano and harmonica as a child and then took up the classical guitar at the age of 12. As a teenager he was strongly influenced by the folk guitar player Steve Benbow, who had travelled widely and played a guitar style influenced by Moroccan music. Graham was one of the most influential figures in the 1960s British Folk Revival. He inspired many famous practitioners of the fingerstyle acoustic guitar such as Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, Paul Simon, John Martyn and indeed Jimmy Page. Graham is probably best known for his acoustic instrumental Anji and for popularizing DADGAD tuning, later widely adopted by many acoustic guitarists. Not one to be categorised Graham could be seen as a true World music artist covering the genres of folk, blues and jazz.Bread & Wine are proud to reissue two of his most influential albums, Folk, Blues and Beyond and Large As Life And Twice As Natural on CD and vinyl, with new sleeve notes from renowned Rolling Stone writer, David Fricke.
