Subject: RE: Gig - Davey Graham / Steve Benbow: 15 July
Davey is coming and is playing most wonderfully as he has always done. He has some great things he is currently performing including "Panic Room Blues" "I once had a Sweetheart" "SMTF" "Hornpipe for a Harpsichord" and "Blame it on my Youth"
Tickets are still available and anyone who genuinely cares about this type of music should buy one.
It really annoys me when people denigrate his repuation when they obviously have no personal knowledge or understanding of his musical importance and intellectual capabilities.
In a room with him, any of you would put your own guitars down pretty quick and just listen. He's that sort of player. Form comes and goes, genius is a different burden altogether.   
Best regards
