Letter: Dave Evans obituary

In 1970 my sister and I were driving along the coast road near Seaton in Devon when we picked up a hitch-hiker. It proved to be the guitarist and songwriter Dave Evans.

We dropped him off at his home in Colyford, where he invited us in for tea, produced a guitar he had made and proceeded to play a beautiful instrumental for us.

As a result I bought his album The Words in Between and saw him performing live many years later. He also introduced me to the music of his friend Steve Tilston.
