Af­ter a highly suc­cess­ful open­ing night, the Brack­ley Beach Fid­dle and Song con­cert se­ries, hosted by Jon Matthews and Sheila MacKen­zie, will welcome pop­u­lar Nova Sco­tia singer/song­writer Brian Eng­land as their guest to­day, 7:30 p.m., at the Brack­ley Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

“One of the first things you will no­tice about Eng­land’s mu­sic is his voice,” says a re­lease.

“He’s a guy who loves to sing and it’s ev­i­dent in his smooth, vo­cal per­for­mance. There is an hon­esty in his voice that makes au­di­ences re­ally lis­ten and runs the gamut of pow­er­ful to soul­ful.”

Eng­land is well known as a mem­ber of the iconic East Coast Celtic Folk Group, Jug in Hand. He has shared the stage with per­form­ers such as Ge­orge Canyon, The Men of the Deeps, J.P Cormier, Dave Gun­ning, Matt An­der­son, Troy MacGil­livray and Cyn­thia MacLeod to name just a few.

Eng­land re­leased his first full length solo CD, “BLUE”, in Jan­uary 2014. It in­cludes 11 orig­i­nal songs, which fo­cus on the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence and peo­ple’s con­nec­tion to each, and was pro­duced by Matthews, an award-win­ning engi­neer, pro­ducer and mu­si­cian.
