Hershaw & Forbes

Here Comes Tomorrow is the debut album from Scottish contemporary folk duo David Hershaw and Sandie Forbes. Their music combines elements of the Scottish folk tradition with modern songwriting, infusing familiar melodies with fresh arrangements and sensibilities. This collection of original and re-imagined traditional songs is their most ambitious project to date.

Sandie Forbes - Fiddle, Vocals

Originally a classically trained violinist, (previous member of The University of St Andrews String Orchestra/ University of Strathclyde Symphony Orchestra) Sandie branched out to a desire in traditional music at the age of 14. She is well known for working as a trio with guitarist virtuoso Sandy Stanage, and Sangster’s singer Fiona Forbes. Sandie has appeared as a soloist and as part of bands around many festivals and folk clubs around Scotland, mainland Europe and the Middle East (picking up a few awards on the way!) “We’ll surely see a lot more of her and I believe she will be an adornment of her country’s music for years to come” Steve McGrail, The Living Tradition. Sandie studied music at Plockton High School and is a graduate from the Strathclyde University BA Applied Music course.

David Hershaw - Guitar, Vocals, Mandolin

David is a popular singer- songwriter in his own right, developing a unique and versatile finger-picking style of guitar. He draws on the styles of Richard Thompson, Bert Jansch and Nick Drake amongst others, showing expertise beyond his years. He was a key member of 2012‘s The Joe Corrie Project as one of The Bowhill Players, as well a founding member of East Neuk alt-rock band The Dirty Hemingway’s. His songwriting and singing ability shows insight, maturity and emotion well beyond his 25 years.
