Manchester Folk Festival 2019: David Gibb

David Gibb is on a one-man mission to make brilliant, engaging and high quality music for families and children. Join David on a musical journey through his hilarious and often surreal imagination, where bears live in the cupboard under the stairs, wolves are roaming the corridors at school, and trips to the moon are a regular occurrence. David’s songwriting draws from a wide range of musical influences, deftly blending folk, jazz, reggae and rock and roll, always with an emphasis on quality and musicianship reminiscent of the classics.

Guaranteed to have both parents and children singing along in no time, this is music that the whole family can enjoy together.

“Prepare to be carried away with the music… packed full of catchy, toe tapping numbers.” The Guardian

“David Gibb has a well-deserved cult following for his stage show which includes tales of dragons and driving chocolate cars. His lyrics are genuinely side-splitting and tunes guaranteed to get stuck in your head for days.” Creative Tourist

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 15-20 October 2019, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
