In the music business, the promoter is the individual who makes the show or concert happen. Through quiet determination, integrity and ingenuity, Peterborough’s Brian Edwards has become one of Canada’s most respected, and admired promoters.
While still a student at Kenner Collegiate, Brian began promoting shows, dances and contests. He quickly became the youngest person ever, at 17 years of age, to be granted a North American professional booking license.
It wouldn’t be long before Edwards’ brand of personal trust, dependability and integrity made Brian the exclusive Canadian agent for legendary Kitty Wells and Wilf Carter, and led to strong working relationships with stars such as George Jones, Roger Whittaker and Anne Murray. Today, Brian provides exclusive management for superstars Tommy Hunter, Frank Mills, and before his death the late Stompin’ Tom Connors.
Stubbornly continuing to be based out of his Peterborough home base, Brian Edwards quietly gained a worldwide reputation and has made an indelible mark on Canadian Country Music.
