The Bookshop Band are Beth Porter and Ben Please. They write songs inspired by books, and play them in bookshops.

The band have recorded a whopping 120 book-inspired tunes, coupled them with musical cameos and readings from top authors such as Yann Martel, Ben Okri, Joanne Harris, Patrick Gale and Louis de Bernières and packaged each album with gorgeous illustrations. The albums will be released monthly from May 2016 onward and will be available on CD and digital in addition to the Mr B’s special edition vinyl of “Curious & Curiouser”. And there will be plenty of opportunity throughout 2016 to catch Ben and Beth on their ‘10’ Tour as they visit bookshops, festivals and libraries around the UK and Ireland, playing the tracks from their newest albums.
