The Burning Glass
Story Telling Star Gazing Ukulele Agit-Pop

The Burning Glass are a four piece acoustic band that do not play Folk or Jazz. We play Agit-Pop. It is Agitative 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, fiddle, drums and lots of singing to bring these songs to life and have been gathering fans in the UK on a busy festival circuit.

On-line copies of their record are selling internationally and they are building a following from as far afield as the US, Canada, Japan and South Africa.

There are plans for the band to go back into the studio, perform a few choice gigs and shoot another music video. Be excited.

"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 Folk's Sake at Glastonbury 2014
