Have you heard of The Bookshop Band? If not, it’s a pity. They write songs inspired by books and play them in bookshops.

It all began in September 2010, when they began opening for Mr. Bs Emporium of Reading Delights’ author evenings. They’d read the book, write a couple songs, and perform them live, in front of an audience that just happened to include the author (no pressure there).

It went something like this (Faith in Weather, from a couple years ago, for travel themed evenings) . . .

Lovely, no?

You can read all about their adventures on The Bookshop Band website–peruse the authors who inspired their songs, download their single, and much, much more.
