Dave will be appearing at HBTS 2021 on Saturday 6th Feb at 14.00 (UK time). We will bring you news of his presentation content shortly.
South African born Dave Ferguson has been playing harmonica since the age of 17. Apart from the regular Blues shows he does with two of the top Blues bands in Cape Town, he also guests with many other high profile Artists in South Africa, and has appeared on a number of commercial album releases, most notably the award winning “Vuur en Vlam” by Valiant Swart and Ollie Viljoen and “County Girl” by Cheree. His playing appears on the theme tune of a new M-Net TV mini series called “Innocent Times” and in addition 3 of his solo tunes are being used on the show as well as cameo appearances.
