Bedford! It’s the final night of our tour, and we plan on closing it with a bang. Come and be part of something a bit special!


Brad Dear is a 22 year old raw folk singer/songwriter from Nottingham, blending his husky vocals with sing along choruses and stories about life. With captivating live performances and a forthcoming EP, Brad Dear has truly secured his reputation as one to look out for in 2017.

Cutting his teeth on the live scene when just a teenager, Brad toured across Europe as a solo artist, raising funds for the charity ‘Rally for Heroes’, also gaining air play by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio One along the way.

Brad has further grown his reputation as an exciting young performer by playing gigs all over the country, along with notable appearances at Dot-to-Dot, Tramlines and other festivals where he has shared stages with a diverse range of artists such as Wolf Alice, Jess Glynne, Public Enemy and Scouting for Girls. Recently Brad was also asked to perform at Nottingham’s prestigious Rock City for Twenty-One Pilots sold out after party.

Currently, Brad is in the studio with a full band, recording the EP set for release in March 2017.


Brian was in his late teens when his first band The Sequels played popular 60s covers in the Hampshire area in the early 80s. A decade or so later he was in a covers and writing 3 piece party band in Cambridgeshire called Crimson Kipper among other things.

These days Brian has taken to the road solo with his acoustic act and a whole load of new songs on the subject of life and a host of covers and traditional tunes. At home in a pub, club or festival environment his catchy, witty, personal songs will strike a chord with many.

He loves to get other musicians involved and is in his element just jamming in a tent or around a firepit.
