Band of Burns is an international collaboration between twelve musicians celebrating the life and work of Scottish national poet Robbie Burns. They debuted the project in early 2017 in two sell-out shows at Bristol Trinity Arts Centre and London Union Chapel.
An all-star ensemble of twelve, top UK folk artists, united by a common appreciation of the philosophy and art of Robert Burns. Featuring Adam Beattie, Mikey Kenney, Dominie Hooper and members of The Langan Band, Honeyfeet and The Odd Beats, Band of Burns will perform “arresting new versions of classic Burns songs” (Celtic Connections) that celebrate his message of equality and social justice.
They have gone from strength to strength over the past two years with full UK tours, including Liverpool St George's Hall, Glasgow Celtic Connections Festival, Aberdeen Tivoli Theatre, London Union Chapel, Bristol Colston Hall and now return to Cranborne Earthouse to launch their debut studio album 'The Thread' in what promises to be another special, intimate, thrilling concert.

A review from the previous Band Of Burns event
"What a magical, inspiring and heart-warming evening the Band Of Burns event at the Earthhouse was! Though celebrating the poetry of a man who lived several hundred years ago, the band made Burns’ legacy fresh, dynamic and very relevant to today. Their irreverence and anarchic banter only added to the enjoyment, that had us laughing and then crying almost simultaneously. And even a debate about feminism - important in a world (musical in this case) in which men still tend to hold sway.
Needless to say, the uniquely crafted, beautiful building did not merely serve as a backdrop but embraced musicians and audience in a strong circle of communality and humanity - much richer than the experience of sitting in rows in most theatres or music venues." - Tony Horitz
