The Band

The Burning Glass are a six piece acoustic band that play powerful storytelling pop music. Edwin Brooks writes songs that tell stories and make people laugh dance and sometimes cry. The band brings together musicians from classical, jazz and folk backgrounds using tuned percussion, ukulele, bass, electric guitar, drums and lots of singing to bring these songs to life and over the last decade the band have built a cult following UK festival circuit. Online copies of their two full length albums continue to sell internationally and they are building a following from as far afield as the US, Canada, Japan and South Africa.

The band are working on songs for a third studio album and there are plans for a live album in 2023.

A  group of lyrically-witty and jauntily harmonised storytellers” – Virgin Music

“The Burning Glass, a storytelling four piece led by Edwin Brooks, who left you wanting to hang out with them and listen to their stories in song form for the rest of the afternoon. The old folk technique of turning self-experiences into clever songs was never more apparent at the festival than in The Burning Glass’ witty and humorous burst of acoustic goodness.” – For Folks Sake
