Birdbrother is a duo which comprises singer songwriter Philip Stapley on guitar and his musical partner Paul Beadle, accomplished multi-instrumentalist and vocalist of the local folk scene for four decades('Journeyman', 'Whiteleaved oak' and 'Splatt'). While Philip’s etheric soothing tones transport the listener to distant melancholic realms, Paul enchants with his energetic and unique performance. Playing mostly original songs of love, life and spirituality which paint a romantic yet melancholy picture. Since 2018 we have played at a variety of venues including ‘Kitchen garden cafe’, ‘Narrowboat sessions’, ‘Katie Fitzgerald’s’ and ‘Ludlow green fair’ Birdbrother formed originally as a Sussex based duo in 2011 with Kris Lamba and recorded their album 'Peace to the wanderer'. Then in 2015 Philip relocated to the Shropshire hills and began the next iteration alongside this wonderful Stourbridge talent.
