What we can do for you
We love to play our so-called songs to live audiences. Invite us to play at your local stadium, park, pub or ice-cream van and see what happens to your neighbourhood.

Write a song for you
For that extra special gift, say it in song. Commission us to write a personalised song – whether for a birthday, engagement, valentine’s, even weddings. We’ll make it an event that goes on giving.
Our monthly night of song, poetry, comedy, magic and cake is the best Monday night in Europe. Upstairs at the famous Betsey Trotwood, Farringdon Road, London EC1R. Come and get stuck in.
Diego Brown and the Good Fairy are passionate about being passionate about things. We learned the craft of song at the age of 7 from a second cousin who later went on to change the course of Anglo-Latin American relations. And we never looked back. Part non-fat dried milk, we demand a lot of our audiences and they usually come up trumps. Our best gigs are unlike anything you've ever experienced. The same can be said of our worst. We were the talk of the chip van queue at Sidmouth International Folk Festival. And we played to a packed latrine in Austin, Texas. We run the Clerkenwell ARTSlab at The Bestey Trotwood in London, at which we regularly push the envelope all the way out of the box.
Sometimes we cycle too
One note after another
There is no waste
Who we claim to be

12 songs and a fanfare to kick it off. Earthly Things is the new album by Diego Brown and the Good Fairy. That’s all there is to say. Get hold of a copy and see what you think. If you’re not completely satisfied, ask yourself this: what in this is completely satisfying? Salt?
We’d like to get you listen to a new record we made, called Earthly Things. We think it’s got some cool sounds, good tunes and some under-used words to get your tongue around. Awesome flugel horns and trumpets by Chris Dowding, upright bass by Andy Hamill and clarinet and backing vocals by Megan all help make this Read more about We did a new album and we’re playing bits[…]
