Band of BUrns


“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”
