The Alan Brown Band from Dundee are taking a trip across the country to be on the Ross Macfadyen Thank Folk it’s Friday programme from 8.00pm on Friday 29 August.
Graham Brown was born in Dundee 36 years ago into a family surrounded by music and with music in its history too.
Graham’s grandfather, uncles and aunties, mother and father and his three brothers are all deeply involved in music, It was easy to see from an early age Graham was going to be very musical and this was evident during his childhood.
Through the years Graham has been part of many projects and musical activities but he himself always says he learnt most of his trade whilst touring with his father’s band from the ages of 13 to 18.
Late in 2010 Graham (pictured left) had a phone call from a man called Micheal Callaghan ‘CAL’ asking him to join his band as they were looking for a bass player and found one of Graham’s adverts on the internet outlining the words Celtic rock. Graham joined the band CAL only to find out that the band’s drummer was a man called David Lindsay. The band CAL split up in 2012 due to musical differences.
Graham and David decided that they would start another band and continue this writing alliance that seemed to work so well, the band Amber Road was born. Amber Road have released three EP’s to date, the first one was called (Amber Road) the second one called (Working Man) and the third one called (Storm).
Graham left Amber Road in June and it was during this time Graham decided to put together his own band so he was able to record more of his commercial and pop songs and tunes as well as the Celtic/rock element of his song writing, this band is called The Graham Brown Band.
Thank Folk its Friday with Ross Macfadyen, Friday 29 August, 8.00-10.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
