Based in the Cotswolds, but influenced by celtic music from around the UK and beyond, the end result from Brimstone is a wonderful combination of different styles, genres, trad and contemporary, creating a beautiful sound which makes you feel good.  Brimstone have  a regular monthly gig at the Noel Arms Hotel.  In 2018 Brimstone were invited back to the Malvern Spring and Autumn Shows,  played at Oxford Folk Weekend, the Seabrights Arms Worcester, Worcester Museum and Art Gallery,  Radnor Fringe Festival and Tintern Fete. In  2017, the band played at Asparafest  , Stratford upon Avon River Festival  Malvern Spring Show,  The ArtYard Cafe,  Enstone plus St Aldates Tavern in Oxford. In 2016 Brimstone were on stage at the Cotswold Living Landscape Festival and headlined at HanFest in Hanwell, Oxfordshire.    There is a special energy that emerges from Brimstone based on years of playing together, friendship, fun. and a desire to entertain. …
