Brian Peters cut his teeth in the Manchester folk music scene of the 1980s, working on several projects with the legendary Harry Boardman.  He’s a true all-rounder, a top ballad singer, and a multi-instrumentalist acknowledged as one of England’s leading exponents of the concertina and melodeon, and also skilled on guitar and fiddle.  He tours internationally, but has always retained a deep commitment to the musical traditions of England, particularly the North West.
