Musical Director

Dave Mawson joined the Kirkham Singers, initially as Accompanist in 2018; his commitment to ensuring the sustainability of the choir has been at the forefront and was evident as Acting Musical Director from 2020 through the pandemic, resulting in his position being permanently confirmed by the choir in March 2022.  Not only does Dave lead the Kirkham Singers, but he carries out the same role for our friends at Freckleton Choir – a busy man indeed.


Dave grew up in West Yorkshire and moved to Freckleton in 2015. Having started piano lessons at the age of 7, he went on to become an accomplished pianist, organist and choirmaster. A life in music followed: in entertainment as part of the famous Batley Variety Club, independent touring and within education, teaching across all age groups and choirs on both keyboard and piano. Before moving to Kirkham, Dave was the musical director for an adult choir in Yorkshire. We are delighted to have Dave on board with our Choir!
