Live In England was filmed and recorded at Downes Braide Association's first-ever live show together which tool place at the UK’s Trading Boundaries on September 28, 2018.

Yes keyboardist Downes said: “It was a most memorable evening and we believe we have managed to capture the magic of the whole night. 

“Chris and I were supported by some amazing musicians – Andy Hodge, Dave Colquhoun and David Longdon and narrated by Barney Ashton Bullock. 

“As well as songs from our albums we have added some extra special treats and we hope it gives a rare insight into the special songwriting and production relationship Chris and I have developed over the last decade on the journey that is DBA.

“We sincerely hope you enjoy the music with us from this very special occasion, in a raw and live setting, and we thank you for all your support.”

Downes Braide Association will return to the UK’s Trading Boundaries on February 14 and 15 next year.
