Dave died on Tuesday 15th March after a long battle against cancer. He passed peacefully, surrounded by his family.
An email below via Sagon Isaac is from Andy Imms, Dave's friend for 30 years:
On behalf of Dave's widow, Christine, I'm trying to contact everyone in the music world who came into contact with Dave. Judging by the tributes which have been pouring in, he ws held in very high regard as a banjo player in both bluegrass and clawhammer styles and as a banjo teacher.
Dave's funeral is on Thursday 31st March, at 3.45pm. The address is:
Easthampstead Park Cemetery and Crematorium South Road Nine Mile Ride Wokingham Berkshire RG40 3DW
The funeral reception is Downshire Golf Complex, which is in the same park as the crematorium.
