 Firefly and Other Music Promotions proudly Present: Band of Burns

Band of Burns is a collaboration of twelve artists from the top echelons of the folk scene, coming together to perform a truly distinct show which celebrates the life, works and philosophies of Robert Burns. 

 Bringing elements of the musical traditions of their homelands; Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, and Turkey, the band originally formed for two shows last January. As well as a love of Burns’s writings, all share a belief in the values he championed – equality, social justice and the power of love – and in their pressing relevance amid today’s troubled times.  The band are currently preparing for the release of their first album, recorded at Live at London's Union Chapel and a nation-wide tour.  

 ''Centred on arresting new versions of classic Burns songs, the band’s material also takes in original compositions and instrumental sets, delivered by an array of compelling vocalists, together with fiddle, bagpipes, and rhythm section. Their crowdfunded debut album, Live at the Union Chapel, thrillingly captures the magic of that triumphant London première.'' Celtic Connections, 2017.

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
