FAKE STRAITS

PLAYING THE MUSIC OF MARK KNOPFLER & DIRE STRAITS

THE PREMIER MARK KNOPFLER & DIRE STRAITS ACT

Dale Harris, guitarist


Dale Harris is a professional guitarist best known for his work in the genre of classical guitar. Dale learned to play the guitar at the age of four and his second instrument was an electric guitar bought for him on his fifth birthday.  He first heard Sultans Of Swing in 1978 and was immediately impressed by the individual sound and style of Mark Knopfler. Dale continued to follow all Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler's albums ever since then. Fake Straits was formed in 2013 during the global financial meltdown, a time-period not dissimilar to those times when Dire Straits became established. Dale Harris has commercially released albums covering all genres of music including classical guitar, jazz-fusion and rock and pop.

Our songs cover everything from the rock classics Sultans Of Swing, Money For Nothing, Twisting By The Pool and up to the later songs from Mark Knopfler's solo albums such as Golden Heart, Shangri-La, and Privateering.



The band features the guitarist Dale Harris, who is incidentally better known in the classical music scene, but here he turns his hand to the music that he first heard on the radio in 1978! Harris is backed by some fine musicians who hail from many different disciplines but who unite for the a just musical cause.
