Since forming in 2007, Trio Verso has performed at venues across the length and breadth of Scotland. Their CD Storm Chaser was released in 2010.  www.myspace.com/trioverso. Brian has published two poetry collections and three pamphlets, his second full collection, The Book of Belongings was published by Arc in 2009.
