Credited for sparking the 1960s folk revival in England, Davy Graham has inspired artists and fellow players such as Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Paul Simon. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin have cited Graham as an influence to their music, and bands such as Fairport Convention and Pentangle also show large Graham influence.

Recently, he has been working closely and consistently with singer-songwriter Mark Pavey, he has once again returned to the stage, playing live acts, and has also been working once again with familiar guitarists and friends, including Bert Jansch, Duck Baker and Martin Carthy.

Recorded over the past two years, his new album “Broken Biscuits” offers 16 tracks, and features 9 new Graham compositions alongside arrangements of traditional music from all over the world. It represents Graham’s first substantial recorded work since 1979’s “Dance For Two People”.

Graham’s back catalogue has also been restored from the original master tapes and is released once more with fabulous new artwork, original sleeve notes and improved sound fidelity.

“He’s my absolute hero, always will be.” Bert Jansch

“Davy Graham can whistle for the money I owe him for Stairway to Heaven and White Summer.” Jimmy Page

The album Davy GrahamBroken Biscuits” (Les Cousins) is going to be released December 7, 2007.
