Shropshire Songwriter's song makes it to the big screen


Telford songwriter Dave Sheriff's song Red Hot Salsa that he wrote for a line dance 20 years ago has been featured in the new Trainspotting 2 film starring Ewan McGreggor


Director Danny Boyle's company DNA Films tracked Dave down through the Internet last May to gain clearance for the song that he wanted to use in a party themed scene that was filmed at a night club in Edinburgh in June.

As there was stiff competition for music to be used in the film, Sheriff was sworn to secrecy until its general release last weekend, but was delighted to have been invited to the exclusive cast and crew showing on 22nd January.


Another of Dave's songs 'Waltz Of A Lifetime' was chosen by music supervisor Michael Davenport of Expressive Artistes in Beverly Hills to be featured in a short film called The Horseshoe Theory that had its World Premiere at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival in Los Angeles California
