Version 3

There are several artists who share the name Dave Evans. This entry describes British guitarist Dave Evans, who is known primarily for several technically impressive albums of acoustic finger-picking guitar music released in the late 1970’s. (This is not the entry for the Dave Evans who was the original lead singer of Australian rock band AC/DC.)

Although he never reached the level of popular acclaim enjoyed by contemporaries Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Leo Kottke, or John Fahey, Evans was in many respects the most talented and nimble instrumentalist of the group. Evans’ most definitive album is probably Sad Pig Dance, which was originally released in 1974 on the Kicking Mule label, and which featured an impressive line-up of elaborately crafted and impeccablly performed original songs.

Although not stylistically revolutionary, Evans’ work is consistently high quality. Fans of Stefan Grossman, John Renbourn, Duck Baker will find much to enjoy.

The photo currently up for this page, alas, is not the right Dave Evans.
