A Rainy Day In Cromer
Hi, My name is Brian Langtry. For my sins I am a musician, playwright,
theatre director and producer and more recently a film maker. Some people
may remember me as one of the founders and long term members of
“Giggetty” a folk band that became the Midlands favourite and went on to
complete 26 years of regular gigging. The Group made 7 albums and
appeared on many national and local TV shows.
Currently I have some 200 songs registered with PRS and I`ve written 6
complete musicals together with accompanying songs and music.
My musical play “ The Eva Cassidy Story” has toured the UK and Europe
continuosly from 2003 until 2011. It begins a new tour in 2014. Similarly, “ The
Billie Holiday Story”, co- written with my good friend, Len Holden toured
extensively through 2007/2009.
In 2012 I produced and toured “ The Connie Francis Story”. I have also
toured a show detailing the life and music of the American icon, Johnny
I currently have three websites selling both my own plays and those from a
library of 14 authors. I am very involved in my home town and try to play a
constructive part in organising the annual Ashby De La Zouch Arts Festival as
well as putting on small events locally and elsewhere.

The interest in film making came from putting together videos of self penned songs for placement on “You Tube”
and this quickly gathered momentum and I became obsessed with the idea of film making as a means of telling
the stories I wanted to explore and share. I am particulary interested in the use of film in live performances.

A Journey Along the Ashby Canal
Brian Langtrys new film is about a journey
along the Ashby canal from the Coventry
Canal to the current base at Snarestone. The
film features music, poetry, interviews
historical commentary and visits to settlements
along the way.
The film is made with Brians customary
attention to detail and a consumate love of
local history. Brian lives and works in Ashby
and his fascination with the lives of those wh
have lived in the area before him, and those
who still do, shines through.
