David Ferrington is a blues musician from La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. A maestro of the acoustic blues, Ferrington, a Brit expat from Lancaster, is well known in Europe where he tours regularly. He came up through the 'blues boom' of Europe in the 70s, when all the great names were touring, and became interested in blues and African music, which led him to study different techniques related to these styles.

He embarked on a journey in search of the roots of Blues and studied many aspects of this music. In 1979 he spent a year in Africa, where he deepened his knowledge of traditional music. Upon his return to Europe, he has lectured concerning the link between traditional African music and the Delta Blues. He practices Slide "bottleneck" guitar, vocals and harmonica. It occurs with "National Style 0 Resonator" guitar 1937 and an acoustic guitar Gibson L 01 1938.

Ferrington plays regularly in the region (Neuchâtel, Biel, La Chaux-de-Fonds), and between 2007 and 2014 he also played in Scotland at the Dundee blues festival 2008, Norway Alesund 2008, Australia 2008 (Echuca Blues Festival). He has toured New Zealand 3 times in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Supported by Tauranga's blues veteran Mike Garner, and percussionist/artist Warren Houston from Rotorua, this will be a stand out performance you won't want to miss!
