  • Cam Brown - His Fingers Fly Faster Than Lightning

    Cam's first time with Write Angle was so successful, we had to ask him back -it's his 3rd time! You won't want to miss him! He's guaranteed to give you an evening of fun! So, get your diaries out! 17th April's the day!

    Cam's an accomplished musician who plays a mean guitar and harmonica, sings non-stop, and involves the audience - you can't help liking the guy or laughing at the lyrics!

    Since age 16, when he sang at the 'Epsom Folk Club' (Paul Simon topped the bill that night), and heard the traditional comic, non-PC folk song genre along with the more contemporary music of Jake Thackray, George Melly, Paddy Roberts etc, that's become the core of his repertoire.

    For 50 years, he's continued strumming at pubs and folk singer's clubs, as well as currently running a successful open mic night at 'The Chelsea Arts Club', London.

    His extensive repertoire of witty and funny songs is organized into themes, including social attitudes, drink, love, relationships, and more. He also includes traditional ballads and poems picked up in those early folk club days; then embellishing, rewriting and setting them to his own tunes, Cam is a very talented guitar player who loves entertaining and it shows. He'll have you beating your seats - if you can keep up with him - and singing along. He's an irresistable charmer!
    As well as his amazing ability to hit the strings with fingers flying at the speed of light, he sings in a blues band called 'SCRAM', as well as forming an "Americana" trio, 'Blazing Saddlers' performing three-part harmony material from the fifties and sixties (think Lonnie Donegan meets the Everly Brothers), and having just completed two very successful evenings at 'the Claygate Music Festival', he produced iis first CD, 'titled Cam Brown Sings vol 1' in 2013.

    "Cam has been our guest many times and I can only praise his charm and tenacity in all the music he produces. He has a flair for comedy but get him to play a blues harp and he will have you spellbound; not to be missed" (Mike Peach, Anchor Folk Club, Byfleet)"We really like your style..." (Dorking Halls), "Cam's always welcome to play here.He can really bring in an audience!" (The Spotted Dog, Dorking)...and that's just the start of it! "

    Meantime, don't forget - our Open Mic is there for you to share your poetry and music as our 'regulars' do, so come along with some of your own work and be prepared to get up and perform! If you'd like to just listen and enjoy, that's fine too - but participating can be an interesting experience - even if you're a 'first-timer'! And don't forget to bring along all your talented friends and relatives!
