About Dave Inglis

I was born and bred in Durham City and started my“ musical career “ at the age of eight, pinching my brothers acoustic guitar when he wasn’t around. Various school bands came and went and after leaving school I was playing the pubs and clubs around the north east performing rock and pop music.

My venture into country music came some years later through a family member and I joined my first country outfit “ Apache” , a renowned and award winning outfit . We even did a short tv appearance for Tyne Tees TV.

I then moved into another north east based band called “ The Blue Rose Band “, A venture that took me from guitar playing to becoming main vocalist.

Economics  finally put pay to the band and I then teamed up with Rick McKay from Portsmouth, but who was living in the north east at the time ,and ” North And South “ duo was formed.

After Rick moved back south again after a couple of years I got the opportunity to join an outfit from Liverpool called “ Daytona “ and became a “ plastic scouser “ performing with Pete Redfern and John Francis, and was thrilled to get the chance to play with the band of my dreams.

Unfortunately John developed throat problems and I was on the move again , joining up with Vic Oakley and Bob Common in “ No Regrets “. An outfit based in South End On Sea.

Due to the constant touring I suffered health wise and decided to base myself nearer to home and teamed up with Malc Allan in the M T Allan Duo, winning British Country Music Duo Of The Year 2008.

Now at the age of 54 I have decided to move into what could be my musical “ swansong “and hit the road as a solo artist as from January 2010 performing songs from my past and new material and try to cater for various audiences.
