Stompin' Dave & Lucy Piper Trio
Stompin' Dave teams up with superb drummer Lucy Piper, and outstanding bass player Sophie Lord, assembling an exciting new trio.
“In other parts of the world they have cyclones, tornados and hurricanes, in the UK we have Stompin' Dave. Dave is a phenomenal artist” Blues In The South. A former member of former UK Blues Band of the Year The Producers, Stompin' Dave was nominated for a British Blues Award in 2014.
With over twenty five years of performing experience, Dave has consistently given over one hundred performances per year across the UK and beyond, including many major festivals such as Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, and Bestival.
Dave's vast repertoire ranges from traditional songs and tunes, to vintage covers, as well as his own originals. “Let's face it, in adding the quality of his original material the man is a downright genius.” Blues In Britain.
