The Band

The Burning Glass are a four piece acoustic band that play powerful storytelling pop music. Edwin Brooks writes songs that tell stories and make people laugh, tap their toes, and even occasionally cry. The band use tuned percussion, ukulele, double bass, electric guitar, drums and lots of singing to bring these songs to life and have for the past 6 years been gathering fans on the UK festival circuit. Online copies of their first record continue to sell internationally and they are building a following from as far afield as the US, Canada, Japan and South Africa.

The band released their second album  ‘Happiness is Egg Shaped’ in August 2017.

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
