Dave Moorwood

Welcome to the Website of Dave Moorwood, guitarist, banjoist, bass player, bandleader, arranger and vocalist in the traditional jazz idiom.

Dave has been playing guitar and banjo with a wide variety of bands and groups since his schooldays (the mid 1950s) but since 2004, on finishing a busy eight year stint with the Pete Allen Jazz Band, he has been concentrating on his own projects; the Rascals of Rhythm and the Big Bear Stompers.

Over the years he has also been periodically found in bands such as those led by Terry Lightfoot, Max Collie, Phil Mason & John Petters, and still helps out in those of Pete Allen, Briant White and Matt Palmer to name but a few.
