'Ted' in 'The Erpingham Camp'

Brian Swaddling is a guitarist, composer, photographer, teacher and bookseller… Brian studied performance studies with fine art at Aberystwyth university, graduating in 2003. He has gone on to perform as a Chinese lion, sing and play guitar in rock, folk and jazz bands, dress as a jester in a two tone body sock, shoot large crowds of strangers at weddings (with a camera), assist numerous young and influential individuals with their guitar and photography skills…and sometimes he has a normal job too.

In recent productions with Louche Brian has provided live instrumental scores performed using wooden spoons, various cooking utensils, a guitar, wine glasses, a penny whistle and a bucket. ‘The Erpingham Camp’ finds him putting his guitar down for a while to open his mouth and speak on stage for the first time in some time…
