Most importantly relax with a beer and wine, some old friends or new friends and have a great evening.

The Bookshop Band are unique. They write songs exclusively inspired by books. They formed as part of the author events at local muti-award winning independent bookshop, Mr Bs Emporium Of Reading Delights. When an author comes in to do an author event, the band read their book before hand and write two songs inspired by it, to be performed in front of the author and audience at the start of the event.

Three years later, the band have written 100 songs inspired by books

The events at Mr Bs remain the core of the band’s songwriting, but the songs and their performances have taken the band all over the UK, playing in many of the nation’s bookshops, as well as overseas to Ireland and mainland Europe. They are regularly featured on the BBC, and their songs are starting to grace the airwaves Europe, Canada, Australia, the US and Mexico!

“Really fabulous new music” Bob Harris – BBC Radio 2

“There is something incredibly moving about hearing a song that has been inspired by that story from your head. It is like seeing your children do something without them knowing you are watching. The book acquires a life of its own. It made me cry listening to The Bookshop Band’s Harold and Maureen songs. The beauty, the tenderness, and the independence of them. That is something I will never forget.” Rachel Joyce, author
