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. "

This man isn't appreciated as much as he should be "up here" but I'm sure that the more more discerning among you will be fully aware of his talents.

Do come along and listen to English Folk music and song performed at its highest level.

Support by The Linties providing their "bus" isn't "snowed in".

Stop Press! I've just been in touch with Paddy Bort, and this is definitely going ahead unless some really horrible weather arrives overnight. I'm travelling up by train, so let's hope they keep running. See you there.

Me and Keith wishing you a safe journey.

Hope you make it, Brian!
You'll be a fairly lone survivor, but will do our best to get there to see you!
Snow now requires a depth sounder where we live! 12" ruler just gets lost!

According to the thread dealing with weather-enforced cancellations on www.footstompin.com, Brian's Edinburgh gig is now cancelled.

Yes, I can confirm this.

It's pretty bad up here but we do intend to have Brian back as soon as possible.

It might now be 2012 but if there's any vacancies before then we might be able to bring it forward.
I know there are a lot of disappointed people in Edinburgh today.

What a shame - but I'm relieved not to have had to make the journey (snow is bad in Glossop too). Hope to see you people in Edinburgh as soon as it can be arranged and, yes Kitty, I am definitely going to do my best to get to Haddenham.

Sorry you can't come but I'd already decided, after further frequent blizzards today, it would not be wise to attempt the journey into town. (I live about 9 miles out, and 600ft up so there's more snow than I've EVER seen in 24 yrs here!)
