In the Gallery: Dave Clinch and The Ballad of Richie Havens 20th October

Step back in time with Dave Clinch when he performs his Gallery Gig: The Ballad of Richie Havens" at the Plough Arts Centre in Great Torrington on the 20th October.

Richie Havens rocketed to world fame following his stellar opening performance in front of half a million people at Max Yasgur’s farm at  Woodstock in the August of 1969. Freedom became his signature song.

Dave says “I was mesmerised by the way Richie Havens played when I saw the film Woodstock in 1970. Forty years later I took up a Guild D40, like Richie’s, and began learning to play his method.

The evening will be my acknowledgement to the memory of Richie Havens and his songs. It will include some of my own songs and other favourites.”

Dave Clinch is a singer and multi-instrumentalist, who has been playing on the North Devon open mic scene for nearly two decades. He also plays the uilleann pipes and low whistle in the tribute band Nightwished.
