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.
Brackley Beach Fiddle and Song takes place every Wednesday until Sept. 2. The air-conditioned and wheel-chair accessible Brackley Beach Community Centre is at 3330 Brackley Point Rd., Route 15.
There will be canteen service available, a 50/50 draw and the artists’ recordings available for sale.
Admission is by cash only at the door which opens at 7 p.m.
Brian England will be joining Jon Matthews and Sheila MacKenzie at their Brackley Beach Fiddle and Song concert series this Wednesday at the Brackley Beach Community Centre.
