In memory of Davy Graham, Virtuoso Guitarist and Mental Health Service User


davygraham1Davy Graham.
He was always a name. Out there. Hard to pin down. As someone with a keen interest in music i’d see his name pop up everywhere and i’d always think i must check this dude out.

Later, i met my wife Beanie and she told me that she once sang with Davy Graham. There was an event at Camden Mind’s Hacker (?) Centre of which he was a member (funny how the obits don’t mention this). Bean only really does one song; ‘All I Need Is A Room Somewhere’, and she does a wicked cockney rendition. Davy for all his famed skills found that he couldn’t keep up with Bean’s interesting singing style and gave up the ghost half way through.

Poor Bean she didn’t really know who Davy was at the time but having found out later she tells this story gladly. Me i’m a magpie and i’m glad to have nicked it for your amusement at this sad time.

Thanks for My Babe Davy. Thanks for Folk Blues and Beyond and Folk Roots New Routes. Sorry the night in the Kings Head wasn’t as good. I’ll check the rest out one day
