Wish it wasn't so far away...
A night listening to Brian is always a treat -- a great selection of songs with good arrangements and thoughtful introductions, as well as lots of fun! He generously shares his passion for the tradition (and songs from other genres) and engages with the audience throughout.
If I had my way, he would be compulsory listening for some of the younger (miserabilist) performers whose repertoire is quite restricted in type and- IMHO- whose connection with an audience is quite superficial.

(Started this post as a genuine regret about missing out on this gig but went off on a rant there -- if you hadn't noticed! Think I should probably start a new thread, if this hasn't already been discussed umpteen times?)
