About the Site
A fan of David Ford since the early days of Easyworld, I’m always scouring the internet to find information on him and his latest gigs. So, whiling away some hours in a remote hotel room in Cork, Ireland, I decided enough was enough – a website needs to be set up to do the scouring for me. So, here it is – hopefully useful to other Fordistas to get the latest skinny on David and his climb to fame. Enjoy!
