David Grubb


“Emotionally charged and touching… Highly melodious, appealingly catchy, even hypnotic at times” (The Living Tradition). David Grubb’s unique brand of composition amalgamates folk, jazz, blues and classical, all underpinned by his Scottish traditional roots. Alongside piano, guitar, and clarinet, David brings together an array of seemingly disparate musical elements. From a riot of galloping beats and strings, to melancholic, reflective and haunting melodies the next, the music weaves and wanders a remarkable journey through imagined soundscapes. David’s critically acclaimed debut title ‘High Rise’ - released in 2014 - was described as “an album of wondrous beauty” (Folk Radio UK).
