Derek Gifford

Whether accompanying himself on guitar or bowed psaltery or singing unaccompanied Derek’s enthusiasm becomes contagious.

Relaxed and confident, with chorus songs a speciality, Derek’s humorous approach will soon have any audience singing along. He has recorded an number of albums over the years often with particular themes such as songs of the sea and songs about birds.

He added music to the poetry of Keith Scowcroft to create the album ‘When All Men Sing’, the title song of which has become something of a folk standard.
