The Bookshop Band write songs inspired by books. What could be better!
Four years ago in Bath they collaborated with their local independent bookshop ‘Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights’ “to inject music into author events and this has led to four recorded albums, tours, festival appearances, praise and airplay from Bob Harris and other BBC Radio presenters and even a commission from the V&A Museum.”
Their Songs (check out the full list) have been based on a variety of books, such as –
‘And Other Dystopias’ – Dark themes in literature
‘Revolutions’ -Revolution, reinvention, revelation and reformation
‘Into the Farthest Reaches’ – Extreme people in extreme predicaments
