Arthur ZZ Birmingham

Honorary Bard

Founder member of R Cajun & The Zydeco Bros with a background in folk music, Arthur has gone on to perform extensively as bluesman Z.Z.Birmingham and with his family band - daughter Ursula (Weil Influenz) on fiddle, wife Penny (Carmen Piranha) harmonies and percussion and son Jake (Elmos Grandez) on bass.

Forty years in the business, he’s no stranger to TV, National Radio and major festivals. ZZ’s engaging stage presence, compelling vocals and off-the-wall humour make for a truly unique act. Arthur discovered Druidry at OBOD’s first SummerCamp ( 1993 ) and soon gained a reputation as a formidable enabler of others to blossom and shine – camp, residential event or more formal circumstances; wherever there’s a call for a fund of music, story and song: in ritual, eisteddfod and round the campfire. His accessible style, and versatility insists on the music in every one of us. ZZ’s website can be found below.
