Description

Since his cancer diagnosis, Brian states music has been medicine for him throughout. In June 2019, Brian completes a five-month chemotherapy chapter and he cannot wait to bring new music and energy to the Fringe. Hear new songs from his EP Recovery and from his vast 29-year catalogue charting his collaborations with Van Morrison and Secret Garden. Brian returned to the stage a mere two weeks after leaving hospital after his nine-hour life-changing operation to sing at a fundraiser for a friend. He has continued to perform selectively as part of the healing process.
