Dave Malkin studied the classical guitar at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Graham Devine. He is one half of Dipper Malkin, alongside John Dipper and his 14-string viola d’amore. The duos debut album, Tricks Of The Trade was included in The Times’ ‘Top 100 Albums of 2017’. He has performed at some of the UK’s most illustrious venues, including St John’s Smith Square, Royal Festival Hall, Union Chapel and LSO St Luke’s. His screen credits include the hit comedy-drama Fleabag, the BBC’s Black Power: A British Story of Resistance, executive produced by Steve McQueen, Amazon’s recent four-part documentary The Curse of the Chippendales, ITV’s Vanity Fair and Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated Surviving Covid.

“John Dipper’s duets with the guitarist Dave Malkin are perfectly judged, the latter’s occasional unassuming vocals adding just the right measure of grit. Exquisite…”
– The Sunday Times
