Eclectic folk with a dark identity.
David Grubb brings together an array of seemingly disparate
musical elements to create a uniquely diverse sound, challenging the audience’s perception of genre and brought to life on stage by a full band.
Performer, string arranger, recording artist, composer; David Grubb’s ability to bridge genres has made him a flexible and valuable musician. As a touring artist he has had the pleasure of working in North America, Europe, Asia, and New Zealand, and has performed at prestigious festivals and venues such as Union Chapel (London), Bowery Ballroom (NYC), SXSW, and Cambridge Folk Festival. Primarily a violinist, he has worked with the likes of Novo Amor, Jim Ghedi, Toby Hay, and Hailaker.
David has been described as “A musician who doesn’t play by anybody else’s rules” (RnR Mag), and his music “highly melodious, appealingly catchy, even hypnotic at times” (The Living Tradition).
His most recent album ‘Nano’ (recorded 2019, released 2020) is an instrumental commentary on the dark side of modern society, inspired by the current political, environmental, and economic landscape.
Fresh from a headline show at Celtic Connections, he is now working on his latest project for which he was awarded a Creative Retreat through Britten Pears Arts.
Support comes from friends and collaborators of David, Toby Hay & Jim Ghedi who have both performed well received sets at The Lost ARC, both individually and together.
