Brian Volke

Brian Volke has been playing guitar since the age of nine. Inspired by the Monkees he wrote his first song in Grade Three. Since then his musical wanderings have led him through rock and country and into Celtic folk and back to rock again. He is the lead singer and main guitarist for the roots band My Son Ted, Their most recent CD is entitled “Carmel’s Parlour”.

Brian also likes to play solo and has found his songwriting to be going in all sorts of different directions. He’s been practicing to be a good flatpicker and writes quirky songs about who and what he knows.

In his musical lifetime Brian has performed at the Regina Folk Festival, opened for the Irish Descendents and the Chieftains, and best of all, has been backed up by Rik Emmett of Triumph. Ask him about that experience!
