“Knopfler has opened a space, where his songs can develop their special delicacy” ~ Rolling Stone

Guitarist, singer-songwriter, poet and founder member of 70s rock band Dire Straits.

David spent three years with Dire Straits before embarking upon a solo career as a rock jazz recording artist. He has recorded many solo albums and often works with Harry Bogdanovs, co-producing the album Wishbones, which includes guest appearances by Chris Rea and Eddi Reader of Fairground Attraction.

More recently, a double CD containing unplugged renditions of new and old songs was released, with David continuing to tour globally including the US, Canada, Spain, Germany, and the UK.

This is a truly great opportunity to enjoy the music of this supremely talented singer-songwriter whose thought provoking and insightful lyrics complement beautifully crafted acoustic music.

“Always great live” ~ Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“In the tradition of singer songwriters such as Joni Mitchel, Randy Newman, and Van Morrison, David Knopfler has produced a highly palatable collection of songs.” ~ Entertainment Today USA
