Glenn hails originally from New Brunswick and now makes his home in Brampton, Ontario. In addition to his solo endeavours, he is also one/half of the Celtic and East Coast duo Brown Ale and one/third of the Celtic-Rock trio Celteclectic. Glenn is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, harmonica, mandolin, banjo, accordion, bouzouki) who is the President and co-founder of the Brampton Folk Club, the 2009 Brampton Arts Person of the Year and a songwriter who was honoured with the 2011 OCFF Songs From the Heart Winner (Humour). Having released 5 CDs, McFarlane showcases his diverse skills not only as a singer and entertainer, but as a songwriter.

With Glenn, you get a high energy, well-paced set of primarily fun and funny folk songs from his five CDs. Some have an East Coast feel to them; others are more country, while still others have elements of rock or even world music in them. His well-crafted originals have a sing-a-long familiarity to them that gets the audience involved. You will be entertained!
