What connects a prisoner in Peterhead, in the North East of Scotland with a quarryman in North Wales?
How did Ron Egyptian get his nickname?
We know all about the Holy Grail, but what about the Knight’s other (and some may say even more difficult) quest?
Following the successful publication of his story-in-verse ‘A Fishy Tail’ in 2010, Ballad of the Rocks and other writings brings together a selection of his other writings in this collection ranging from the serious to the absurd. They are all designed with the spoken word in mind. Dave’s passion for improvising and experimenting with words shines through, whether telling the tales of the Ballad of the Rocks, the Other Quest, evoking memories of childhood or creating nonsense verse. For many years he has written, recorded and performed music for theatre, film and live events. He sculpts and creates from slate and stone, working from his workshop alongside other artists at Parc Glynllifon in North Wales. (Artistiaid yr Iard-iard.co.uk). As well as all these activities, Dave uses his creativity to design, develop and deliver creative active training courses and events for all ages.
