Gilbert over at Echoes and Dust is a great supporter of Bird’s Robe and asked me to write a bit about the background behind how BRC and BRR formed and how it works – as well as where it’s going.

It’s only been 4 years since we kicked this thing off at the first show on June 6th, 2008 – but it feels like a lot longer. Took me quite a while to write this up, but hopefully it gives a bit of insight for anyone who’s interested.  There’s a lot of good events (and good people) I haven’t mentioned in this, but I’m sure I’ll get round to writing the complete collect histories of BR some day. In the meantime, here’s a “brief” introduction.
