Wednesday 1st december at Pleasance cabaret bar

"Brian Peters is a performer of traditional folk music who combines a high level of skill on three different instruments with a great voice and an energetic stage presence.

He's a leading English squeezebox player, doubling on melodeon (button accordion) and anglo concertina, a fine guitarist well-versed in open tunings, and a passionate singer who can convey drama or emotion, while his carefully-constructed accompaniments blend adventure and sophistication.

Described as "One of British folk music's finest ambassadors", Brian started out in the folk clubs of England and has taken his performances to stages all over the world, touring regularly in Europe and America, and always retaining a deep commitment to the musical traditions of his native country.

Brian believes strongly in the power and relevance of the old songs and bases his sets around them. In particular he specialises in the ancient story songs known as ‘Child Ballads’, and has produced a CD and a special live presentation based around them. "Brian Peters plunges deep into the ancient songs, finds their power, mystery, evil, drollery and courage, and brings them to us fresh", declared one American writer. He's no diehard, though, spicing his regular show with contemporary songs, material of his own and occasional bursts of wild eclecticism; his stage set achieves startling variety, without ever betraying his traditional roots.

On the instrumental side, Brian has been a mover in the creation of a distinct identity for Northern English dance music, researching, playing and teaching rare tunes from centuries-old manuscripts, as well as composing many tunes in traditional style. He's also become known for daring forays into ragtime, blues and rock'n'roll on his squeezeboxes. Brian presents his material with warmth and unforced humour to appeal to the casual listener as well as the committed folk fan. "

I'm told it's The Linties unless you're thinking of the 8th?

Me? No, I'm just interested and curious. I feel like I've made some new friends and I feel a compassionate concern for their wellbeing.
