Falkirk Storytelling Festival Brian McNeill

Brian McNeill

Falkirk Storytelling Festival brings you a rare opportunity to hear one of Falkirk’s legendary songwriters in the historic Faw Kirk in the heart of the town.

One of the most acclaimed forces in Scottish music, Brian was born in 1950 in Falkirk and has been described as ˜Scotland’s most meaningful contemporary songwriter” (The Scotsman). Add to that his work and influence as performer, composer, producer, teacher, musical director, band leader, novelist and interpreter of Scotland’s past, present and future and you have a man who has never stood still. He has performed around the globe, both as a soloist and with some of the era’s most influential bands, including the Battlefield Band, which he founded in 1969, Clan Alba and as a core member of the UK fiddle phenomenon, Feast of Fiddles. Brian performs and teaches regularly at many of the world’s major festivals and is the longest running booked artist at the Cambridge Folk Festival.
