Sad Pig Dance - Dave Evans passed away...

 

... in Belgium where he lived, a few hours ago.

I’m pretty sure the “pig” isn’t dancing, today, and it’s even sadder than ever 😢.



Mr. Evans has been a guitarists’ guitarist, a fantastic musician, and an unique and poetic voice in late ‘60s and early ‘70s folk clubs circuit.




I corresponded with him in 2009 and he was extremely kind and supportive with my interest for his music and I was able - in decades of studying  - to fondly play (not mastering) some of his superb compositions - i.e. The Galtee Hunt, Sad Pig Dance, Braziliana and others.

Please read here more about this great, humble, sincere artist.




I wish to express my condolences to his family... he’ll live forever through his music.

I’m sad, too...
