Highly Strung are a five piece live band, based in Carlisle, Cumbria.
Founding members Andy Whitaker and Dave Mason both strive to stay at the top of the scene. They have performed at so many weddings over the years (averaging 40 a year) and always receive an amazing response. They have also performed at various festivals, supporting Little Mix and Dr & The Medics.
On behalf of Cumbria CVS, the 100 volunteers and the 18 different charities we would like to say a huge thank you to you both for providing your amazing acoustic sets for our entertainment at the volunteers celebration event at Carlisle Tithe Barn. We really appreciate that you both gave your time for free and can't thank you enough. The evening wouldn't have been anything without you guys to keep all the volunteers entertained. Thanks again.

Dave's background is music through and through ,his dad formed and still plays in legendary local band lemon grass and his sister is also a accomplished singer so music is definitely in his blood, Dave formed his first band when he was 14 and can't remember a time when he didn't have a band or project on the go, the musical director and arranger of the band never likes to stand still and is always looking for a new tune or arrangement to keep the band going forward and on its toes, Dave has a fine collection of vintage and new guitars built up over the years, his main two are a 1973 fender telecaster deluxe and a fender custom shop strat.All Member Bio's
