David Hughes: Soothing Blues and witty acoustics

David Hughes is an Isle of Wight musician not very keen into self-promotion. This is a shame, as his soothing and sometimes witty Blues would certainly be enjoyed by a large audience. David plays in all sorts of gigs across the IOW, but he tends to be seen more often at events run by Amnesty International and The Samaritans.

His influences go back to the 1970’s and include people such as John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, John Martyn and all the greats such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. However, his music has a very contemporary feel and he is always absorbing new ideas from each person he listens to.

While the lack of concern for promoting his work prevents a higher number of people from enjoying his songs, it also gives him the freedom to create at a whim with an adventurous touch, something that he seems to make the most out of it. We will show you here a few of his songs. But watch out for this space, as new work might be on the way.
