Brian Peters is one of the English folk music scene’s great all-rounders, a compelling singer and an outstanding multi-instrumentalist. He’s a top anglo-concertina player, expert on button accordion and guitar, and has recently added banjo to the list. Well known for his towering renditions of Child Ballads and other songs from the tradition, but also encompassing songs of social comment and instrumentals, Brian’s repertoire is full of variety, fire and humour. He also has a deep knowledge of the history behind the folk repertoire.

Brian has played countless folk festivals in Britain, and has toured internationally, including regular visits to the USA, Canada and the Australian National Folk Festival.  He’s an experienced teacher and leader of instrumental and ballad workshops, including Appalachian Mountain summer schools. Brian has recorded many acclaimed CDs, devised concept performances of Child Ballads and Appalachian-English songs, and worked with singers and musicians including Sara Grey (USA) and Jeff Davis (USA). He worked with Pete Coe and Laura Smyth on 2019’s ‘Road to Peterloo’ project, and had a key role in the most recent revival of Peter Bellamy’s ‘The Transports’ in 2022.


‘One of the best English singers and musicians on the folk club and festival scene’ – English Dance & Song

‘A singer, guitarist and melodeon player of rare ability… one of the very best performers in the field of English Traditional song and music’ – Dirty Linen (USA)
