The Bookshop Band are the offspring of an artistic love-affair between a duo of English folk singer-songwriters and a multi-award winning independent bookshop in the UK, Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath. They write and perform songs based on books, and have been inspired by hundreds of authors from Shakespeare to Philip Pullman and Margaret Atwood. Join them on their home turf for a joyful evening celebrating story in all its forms, including songs from their new project, Dear Land of Story Books, a homage to classic Scottish writing for children.
