Moffat Music Live

Moffat Music Live are

Dave Dick

Dave started learning the guitar around 1967. His “discovery” of the world of black acoustic blues, helped to foster a lifelong interest .
Never narrow-minded in his musical tastes, Dave played in folk bands, most notably, “The Whole Hog”. Busking trips to London and Paris, further toughened up his playing and performing during the mid 70s.
In 1977, a chance encounter with the very young Eddi Reader, lead to the formation of the trio “Pigmeat”, with guitarist Angus Aird. They played together round Scotland  - with the odd foray to Cambridge and London .
In 1979, Dave began a career as a professional bird conservationist – a job that lasted until he left it, in December 2006.

He is now half of the professional guitar duo "Wing and a Prayer"
Jamie McClelland
The young man of the group. Jamie comes from a well known musical family, which have been based in Moffat for generations.Steeped in the scottish song tradition he also had the great good fortune to have been mentored by his uncle, the late great Lionel McClelland, one of Scotland's finest folk musicians and poets and interpreter of Robert Burns songs.In association with Moffat Music Live, in the last two years, he has now supported the likes of the Paul McKenna Band in concert and appeared at local folk clubs and other gigs in South Scotland.
