“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)
Hi, I'm Brian Stone, a lively, original singer songwriter known for engaging, entertaining performances of modern, high energy folk music. Fun and energetic, with masses of crowd participation, my catchy, original songs strike a chord with audiences of all ages.
From the moment I hit the stage crowds are encouraged to get involved. My energy, enthusiasm and sheer love of performing is irresistibly infectious and the audience quickly feel part of the show. I take crowds on a journey through songs of joy, sadness, hope, love, piracy and partying, singing and dancing along the way. After gigs people say how much they love feeling immersed in the show, the excitement and the happiness.
After hundreds of festival appearances, I now perform on main stages and headline shows and consistently attract large crowds; notably at Beautiful Days, where I built one of the largest Bandstand crowds, and Bearded Theory, where the trio (Masters Of None) played to a capacity second stage in 2022
My latest album "Fear The Flames" was released to a sell out crowd in April 2022 and follows debut album, "Master Of None" (Review) ) and a further 4 live and studio EPs.
A string of supporting roles for the likes of 3 Daft Monkeys, Ferocious Dog, The Leylines & Leatherat has seen me perform venues as large as the O2, Oxford. Whether in a small bar or on a big stage I always manage to relate to audiences and maintain that intimate connection.
“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
