Brian Ainley -fiddle and vocals
Born July 1947, Norton Fitzwarren (It's all a bit of a blur to me now). Formative years spent on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, then moved to Bristol. Learned folk son on my mother's knee,-and other joints, such as The Half Moon pub folk club, (early 70s), the Troubadour, Clifton (resident) & Bristol University folk club and sundry others.
Played guitar from age 14, then, in my mid 40s, made a fiddle and decided to play it, ot the annoyance of my family and neighbours.
Joined the Hotwells Howlers around 6 years ago, and not they can't get rid of me (it's all a bit of a blur)....
