Bryan can be seen out and about most days leading groups and bringing the joy of singing to people. He is Musical Director of Westerton Male Voice Choir and is the founder and director of the SING aLOUD singing for pleasure groups and leads community choirs, Every Voice Choir, Carers Choir and Velvet Voices.
Highlights in recent years for Bryan was having the pleasure of leading choir projects for the Relay of Sound (for London 2012) and The Big Song Relay (for Glasgow 2014). He was also very fortunate to work with legendary film director Ken Loach as music adviser on his Glasgow based film 'Ae Fond Kiss'.
Using his talents and connections to help others is very important to Bryan, and using singing as a means of fundraising for charity is a regular feature of his work. Over the last 20 years, Bryan is extremely proud to say that (with a little help from his friends!) he has raised in excess of £65,000 for local and national charities - all through singing!
