Stompin' Dave & Lucy Piper Trio

Stompin' Dave teams up with superb drummer Lucy Piper, and outstanding bass player Sophie Lord, assembling an exciting new trio.

“In other parts of the world they have cyclones, tornados and hurricanes, in the UK we have Stompin' Dave. Dave is a phenomenal artist” Blues In The South. A former member of former UK Blues Band of the Year The Producers, Stompin' Dave was nominated for a British Blues Award in 2014. 

With over twenty five years of performing experience, Dave has consistently given over one hundred performances per year across the UK and beyond, including many major festivals such as Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, and Bestival.

Dave's vast repertoire ranges from traditional songs and tunes, to vintage covers, as well as his own originals. “Let's face it, in adding the quality of his original material the man is a downright genius.” Blues In Britain.

Exeter based drummer Lucy Piper is the daughter of the late blues guitarist, writer and broadcaster Julian Piper - acknowledged as a leading UK exponent and authority on blues. Lucy performed with Julian's band Junkyard Angels. The band were often the backing band for touring musicians from the USA.

In the past few years Lucy has spent many nights performing in Mississippi, USA alongside many top musicians. In 2019 and 2020 Lucy worked with double Grammy Award winning label Ruf Records on their annual 'Blues Caravan'.
