The Bookshop Band are the musical offspring of an artistic love-affair between a group of award-winning folk songwriters and an independent bookshop in the UK, Mr. B’s Emporium of Reading Delights. The songs are the musical outpouring of the band’s own response to books they have read.

About the musicians
Beth Porter  has worked with some of the biggest names in both the pop (Mel C, Petula Clark, Peter Gabriel, Newton Faulkner, Royal Blood), and contemporary English folk (Bellowhead, Emily Portman, Eliza Carthy, and the Wayward Band, Martin Carthy). Beth has been nominated, as part of Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band for two BBC Folk Awards (Best Album and Best Band in 2018), and her debut solo album ‘Open Doors’ was selected by The Telegraph as one of the best folk albums of 2015.

Ben Please - co-founded indie-folk band Urusmen (2001 - 2011) who were signed to Peter Gabriel’s Real World Works. He collaborates regularly with his animator brother to write film scores and in 2011 they won a BAFTA for Best Short Animation for ‘The Eagleman Stag’, which was long-listed for an Oscar in 2012. Ben is an accomplished composer, pianist, guitarist, singer and music producer.

A selection of the books that the band will be performing songs inspired by:
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage, by Philip Pullman, Bring Up The Bodies, by Hilary Mantel, The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell, The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland  by Lewis Carroll, Richard the Second by William Shakespeare, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
