The Band


Gilly Brownhill (fiddle & backing vocals)
Gilly is a 'folky', also with a love for country fiddle. This blend of styles perfectly suits the eclectic BSG set. When not playing or at work, Gilly can be found at many of the summer season's folk festivals around the country.

Gilly also often plays with daughter Rosie and husband Dave. Dave is a member of well-known Midlands-based band, Radio Mary and Gilly alsojoined them in 2012.
She plays both acoustic and electric violins, the latter mainly for live work.

Harry (drums)
Harry is the 'baby' of the band and joined for his first gig with BSG in October 2014, following the departure of Huw McPherson.
This is his first forray into the world of country-folk-blues

Nik Holmes  (upright bass & backing vocals)

Nik is a talented and versatile bass player and almost as good on acoustic guitar (which he doesn't get to play with BSG). With BSG he uses an upright 'stick' bass, delivering great tone and range. He is also the band 'techmeister' and has a language all of his own! Fortunately, Nik understands how to work a 16 channel digital mixer... the rest of the band don't!
He lives in Uttoxeter, having made the move from Manchester (via other places....) some years ago. He also runs his own business - on the 'dark side' of electronics and 'webby/programming stuff'.
