Three acclaimed singer/songwriters share the stage. Each has an established pedigree of performing solo, and with bands. When they share the stage to sing their own songs, a kind of magic happens which doesn’t occur in a solo performance! Spontaneous backing vocals and accompaniment break forth, as well as a fair amount of banter and anecdotes, and possibly a rousing, foot-stomping ensemble number at the end.
There are currently 4 brothers (with a few waiting in the wings to join!); but you’ll only get 3 in a show. Brotherhood of Troubadours is not a band. It’s possibly a ‘music collective’, definitely a ‘Song Writers Circle’. It’s definitely a great way to experience their music.
Nick Hall, Jon Palmer and Baz Warne are performing.
NICK HALL – Nick Hall is an award-winning singer songwriter, half of Plumhall and The Hall Brothers (and he tours as a session guitarist with Magna Carta). Nick has performed all over the world and onstage with many of his heroes – including Al Stewart (at the London Palladium), Peter Tork of The Monkees, Larry Campbell, Phil Beer, Chris Leslie, Ian McNabb, Ian Prowse and many more. Recently, he was asked to write a song for, curate the music, and appear in the acclaimed film ‘The Runaways’. Nicks’ years of touring and recording have honed his act into something special, which has attracted a loyal following. His unique guitar style, stage presence, soulful voice and emotional songs are a guarantee of a great night out.
JON PALMER – A former national award-winning songwriter, and best known for appearing with the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band. Jon also performs the occasional solo gig, including shows with the Brotherhood of Troubadours. Asked what his musical plans are for the future, Jon simply replies “to have lots of fun!”
“Great songwriter… absolutely wonderful” Mike Harding
“Palmer is a superb songwriter… wonderful melodies and soaring choruses, contemporary, interesting, and vibrant…style, wit and panache” Maverick Magazine
BAZ WARNE – Canadian-born Brit-punk, guitarist and songwriter Baz has played with Sunderland punks Toy Dolls, Smalltown Heroes, The Troubleshooters (1000+ gigs) and Sun Devils. Most recently called up by the Stranglers to fulfil their guitar requirements, Baz continues to play solo performances playing a selection of his own material with maybe a few Stranglers songs thrown in for good measure.
