He is a working-class Lowland Scot from Edinburgh coming from typical Irish/Highland Scot descent. Brought up with the customary Scottish socialist vision he has always been of the Left in his politics. Quite typical of his generation. I think the quality of his singing and his guitar-playing unmatched in these islands. And he can write a song.
Dick Gaughan has a Website at http://www.dickalba.demon.co.uk/ where he has a partially complete Discography with his own personal notes about the recording details of the albums. A visit to the site is a necessary pilgrimage for fans.
Greatness. He has that stamp about him now. It comes from his inner confidence as an artist as he ages into maturity. There is a tremendous authority in his singing and guitar-playing. His only weakness is that in his search for new songs he tends to be drawn to weaker political material. But then he is a Scots-Irish troublemaker at heart. Like most people from the Scottish Central Belt.
The standout song of the evening was a capella rendition of `Bogie's Bonnie Belle'. I had always thought that this was a Davie Stewart song but Dick didn't seem to think so. The mix of songs was mainly classical contemporary (eg `Banks of Sicily', `Schooldays Over' etc) with the occasional classic traditional folk song thrown in. The very modern work, apart from `Both Sides of the Tweed', `Song for Ireland', `The Diggers Song' and perhaps a couple of others seemed weaker.
The voice and guitar were absolutely magnificent. This is the best I have ever heard from him. The one song I would like to have heard was `MacCrimmon's Lament' but I wasn't to be so lucky. I can't wait for the next time he comes to Bath.
If anybody has anything to add I am Douglas Clark (email@example.com).
