Ian W Brown
April 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Over the years, we have had many talented singer/songwriters at the club. However, as far as anyone can remember, never have we had someone who has written a worldwide number 1 song (7 countries including UK and Australia. That’s exactly who we have in Ian W Brown. If you want to know what song that was, come along, as it will be in his set. You will know it! This is a fundraiser for the festival in October, where Ian will also be performing.
From Folk, Country, Dance to Pop and beyond. He has written songs for Fisherman’s Friends, Show Of Hands, D – Side, Simon Webbe, Pixie Lott, Drum Sound and Bass Line Smith, Don Diablo, Sandi Thom, Henry Priestman, Rose Lynn Harlan and even the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. In the last year Ian’s songs have played on BBC Radio 1, 2, 4 and 5 and he is working on something for BBC Radio 3, once he has mastered the nose flute.
Live, Ian has supported 10 cc, Steve Harley, Rita Coolidge, Julie Felix, Martin Simpson, Martin Cathy and many more. He has played Glastonbury, Cornbury, Purbeck and Greenwich festivals and more besides but his proudest moment is performing the anthem to his wife ‘The Five Foot Two Inch Giant’ on the model village stage at The Wimborne Folk Festival (you could make it up, but he doesn’t have to.. it happened!).
