A welcome return for singer-songwriter David Vaughan with his highly original mix of chanson, latin jazz and classical music. “A refreshing, novel and entertaining performance it is!” says Mike Arbuckle of

David Vaughan – voice, piano & guitar; Romano Viazzani – accordion; Daniel Broncano – clarinet.

Two 45 minute sets of original songs arranged especially for voice, piano/classical guitar, accordion and clarinet. The songs call on a number of influences including French chanson of the mid 20th century, modern and traditional latin jazz, and classical music. They are melodic in nature with intricately arranged accompaniments highlighting David Vaughan’s talents as both a performer, composer and arranger. Vaughan leads the show in his own relaxed, friendly style putting his audience at ease for what is an intimate, often heart-felt, sometimes dramatic, sometimes virtuosic show.

There are few contemporary British songwriters proposing such an original blend both of instrumentation and of musical styles. The sound of top UK accordionist, Romano Viazzani, combined with the spirit and panache of classical clarinetist Daniel Broncano, provides an inimitable backdrop to Vaughan’s songs. And yet this is neither folk nor traditional song, but something entirely original. As reviewer Mike Arbuckle writes following David’s debut album launch in 2015, “With this album and in live performance David Vaughan disavows categories and asks the listener to embrace the wealth of music that exists. He is very persuasive and deserves to succeed.”
