About Elaine Davidson and Band
At 18, Elaine Davidson found herself busking her way round Europe, playing songs from the beat generation, Bob Dylan, the Eagles, Joni Mitchell and the like. Making her way by playing music as well as picking fruit and working in bars and hotels, she alongside a friend, travelled through Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Holland, Germany and Ireland.
At 21, she returned back home to Cumbria, with the intention of starting a band. She met her husband and joined the crowd of musicians who played the pubs and clubs in the North of England. As well as playing the club circuit, over that time period Elaine also played and wrote for several original outfits with jazz, blues, rock and country overtones, learning her craft as a songwriter as well as a performer. Elaine eventually returned to being a solo singer songwriter and self-produced her first CD Inside.
Danny Hart, a talented violinist, and multi-instrumentalist, joined her on her second CD, Moon and Tide. Double bassist, Laurence Blackaddder became the third member of the outfit and completed what was to become a musical trio with a unique and unusual blend. The unique timbre of a double bass, as well as Laurence's jazz background, gave an added sophistication to Elaine's song structures, and the musical synergy between Danny and Laurence created what was becoming a truly unique, interesting partnership.
