Band of Burns

Band of Burns is a collaboration of twelve artists from the top echelons of the folk scene,
coming together to perform a truly distinct show which celebrates the life, works and
philosophies of Robert Burns.

Bringing elements of the musical traditions of their homelands; Scotland, Ireland, England,
Wales, and Turkey, the band originally formed for two shows in January 2017. As well as a
love of Burns’s writings, all share a belief in the values he championed – equality, social
justice and the power of love – and in their pressing relevance amid today’s troubled times.
The band released their Debut Album, recorded at Live at London’s Union Chapel in January
2018 with a nation-wide tour to support the release.

“A shimmering collection … that does full justice to the poet’s humane vision”
The Times

“Band of Burns take few prisoners with their often raucous, partying dance tunes but are
also capable of softer, more reflective moments”
The Herald

“Nourishing stuff beyond its times, another warm, welcoming stew to feed the bones”
The Guardian

“Exemplary musicianship, exemplary lead playing with a real respect for the tradition
shining from every song”
Fatea Magazine
