Under the Edge Arts, The Chipping, Wotton-under-Edge GL12 7AD, UK


Chris Brain emerged out of Leeds’ vibrant folk scene in 2022 with his debut, critically acclaimed and widely distributed album, Bound to Rise, reaching #22 in the UK Folk Charts.

His much-anticipated second album (Oct 6th ‘23), Steady Away, moves inward and takes on a more self-reflective quality, whilst retaining glimmers of soaring figures and pastoral imagery.

Brain’s distinctive warm vocal and finger-picked guitar style are sustained alongside expansive strings and delicate piano arrangements, taking shape through evolving and introspective impressions on tenderness, loss, pain and awe in nature.

Glancing off The Nave’s eaved ceilings with natural reverb, Steady Away’s 11 tracks, recorded by Tom Orrell, capture the intimacy of Chris’ songwriting.

Steady Away further embeds Chris Brain within the contemporary folk scene, whilst gesturing towards the folk tradition. His commitment to folk is only deepened by the two folk clubs and folk festival in Leeds that Chris founded and runs, attracting a wide range of audiences and musicians alike.

With introduction by local poet Mark Pasco.

Mark is well known to Wotton audiences as a local writer of plays, pen pictures & sometime poetry. His themes include local characters,  forgotten places & above all wildlife - as he casts his gaze upon our natural world and its wonders. Weaving original & improvised music around his words will be Dave Kempson on piano.
