'One of Canada's most tasteful and accomplished acoustic guitarists'

There’s no place like home.

That’s certainly been the experience of Dave Clarke, who is back in his home town of Montreal after a nine-year ramble across the Canadian West that took him all the way to Vancouver Island and back again.

Now he is working on his third solo release, a compilation of guitar instrumentals that is slated for release in summer 2020.

The Healing Garden will include a dozen or so of Dave’s originals, some from his time in Victoria, B.C., others from Edmonton, Alta. The release will be rounded out by a suite of compositions written since his return to his native Montreal a couple of years ago.

Look for more news on Dave's new album soon; meanwhile, find out  more about Dave's two previous solo CDS: Reunion (2007) and Guitar Songs (2002).

By the way, that's Dave's 1938 Martin D-18 at the top of this page: it has been his constant companion since he ordered it, sight unseen, from Elderly Instruments in Michigan way back in 1980.
