The Bookshop Band ~ Live from Wigtown

Fridays during lockdown
8.30pm, via WBF Facebook

Wigtown-based musicians The Bookshop Band are performing weekly concerts at 8.30pm on Fridays during the lockdown period, which we will be live-streaming on the Wigtown Book Festival Facebook page. And, if you can't wait, here's their show from 1 May.

The Bookshop Band are the offspring of an artistic love-affair between a duo of English folk singer-songwriters, Beth Porter and Ben Please, and a multiple award-winning independent bookshop, Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights.

They write and perform songs inspired by books, inspired by hundreds of authors from Shakespeare to Philip Pullman and Margaret Atwood, and have released 14 studio albums featuring many of the authors they have worked with. They moved to Scotland’s National Book Town in 2017.
