SONGWRITING duo David Ford and Annie Dressner have decided to showcase their brand new collaboration on a unique Summer Holiday tour.

As summer comes around and the attentions of their fellow touring musicians turn toward the joys of muddy fields and festival toilets, Annie and David are heading to the seaside for a night at the theatre.

David Ford and Annie Dressner present The Summer Holiday Tour which kicks off on Friday, July 1 and will showcase a unique evening of song. 48 Hours with David Ford and Annie Dressner will be released on all platforms Friday, July 1.

The duo will be performing at The Staveley Roundhouse on Sunday, July 17.

David Ford and Annie Dressner began their musical alliance in early 2022. But listening to the blend of their voices and their timeless songwriting, you’d be forgiven for thinking they had been making music together forever.

In truth Annie and David became friends in January, while playing on the same bill at a couple of gigs in the freezing North of England.

Initially sitting in for a song or two in each other’s set, these brief moments of collaboration became a highlight of the show.

Two weeks later, they had written and recorded their debut release, naming it 48 hours in honour of the two-day burst of creativity during which most of the material was written.
