Bio

Brian Stone is a high energy, original singer songwriter known for engaging, entertaining performances of modern, high-energy folk music. Fun and lively, with masses of crowd participation. His catchy, original songs strike a chord with audiences of all ages and have gained him a rapidly growing fan base. 

From the moment he hits the stage crowds are encouraged to get involved. Brian's energy and sheer joy of performing is irresistibly infectious and the audience quickly feel part of the show. He takes us on a journey through songs of joy, sadness, hope, love, piracy and partying, singing and dancing along the way. After the show people say how much they love feeling immersed in the show, the excitement and the happiness.

"Brian Stone has got that magical ability to engage with audiences. It's that undefinable quality that sets great entertainers apart from competent musicians." - John Bownas (Promoter, Beautiful Days Festival) 

After hundreds of festival appearances, he now commands main stages and headline shows. He's consistently attracted large crowds, notably at Beautiful Days, where he built one of the largest Bandstand crowds seen in recent years, and at Bearded Theory where he's packed out one venue year after year. Collaborations have led to many popular duo and trio shows and a hugely successful full band debut performance at Lakefest in 2019.

A string of supporting roles for the likes of 3 Daft Monkeys, Ferocious Dog, The Leylines & Leatherat has seen him perform venues as large as the O2, Oxford. Whether in a small bar or on a big stage he always manages to relate with audiences and maintain that intimate connection. He's also taken his act into Europe and the Far East.

His debut album "Master Of None" (Review) was released in October 2018 following live and studio EPs and work is currently underway on his second album.

In 2016 he joined forces with Jonny Wallis, lead singer of The Newcranes, and their infectious enthusiasm and obvious mutual enjoyment of working on stage together led to a popular double act, The Fox & The Pirate. Together they have toured and played many festivals as this highly entertaining duo.

“I have booked Brian Stone for all four Mac-Stock festivals since 2016. Brian's personality, charisma on stage and his ability to relate to any audience separates him from the wannabes. The audience love his wit, warmth and cannot resist his infectious call to dance and singalong with him. Book him; you won't regret it.” - Graham Parker, Curator Mac-Stock Music Festival
