Dave Kane | Back
Double Bass

Bassist Dave Kane was born in Bangor in County Down in Northern Ireland. At age 16 he bought an electric bass guitar from a catholic priest for 50 pounds, and began playing in local punk and alternative bands, but study with the internationally acclaimed composer and bandleader Brian Irvine led him also to explore the idioms of free improvisation and contemporary jazz. He continued his studies at Leeds University, and then moved to London, where he worked with such legendary figures as Keith Tippett, Paul Dunmall, Elton Dean, Evan Parker, Tony Levin, Mark Sanders, and Paul Rogers.Currently back in Leeds, Kane is a founder member of L.I.M.A. (Leeds Improvised Music Association) and the musical director/composer for the L.I.M.A orchestra
