03 – Dave Hillyard – Conversations on a Revivalist Movement

Posted on March 20th, 2007 by JJ Loy

In this Episode, you’ll hear my interview with Dave Hillyard, as well as some live music from his bands, The Slackers and The David Hillyard Rocksteady Seven. Hillyard talks about life on the road, as a touring musician, and life at home, as a husband and father. We discuss playing for non-ska audiences and the different reactions he’s gotten from Jazz-heads. He also talks about his trip to Jamaica, and the times he’s worked with some of Ska’s earliest legends.
