·

Start Time:

16:30

From Leeds, The Burner Band play old school country and rock ‘n roll in their own style. After two solo albums (Dog Songs, 2018, Dark Wheels, 2020), front man Lewis Burner collaborated with bass man Ian Blackburn to forge a collection of songs ranging in subject matter from mental health, murder, migraines and Liverpool’s campaign to rid the city of The Sun. This became 2021’s release ‘Signs & Wonders’ on Shed Load Records, receiving strong reviews in Saving Country Music, Americana UK and Folk Radio.

Hearkening back to the Sun Records era when you could label most anything country, rock n’ roll, or rockabilly depending on who was singing, Signs and Wonders takes inspiration from the Million Dollar Quartet session, infuses it with just a little bit of a punk attitude and maybe even a dash of bluegrass, and fleshes it all out with more modern lyrics.

Trigger, Saving Country Music

Incipient, snarling rock and roll melding bluegrass and punk as if this were Memphis in 1954.

Peter Tomkins, Americana UK

This entertaining, quality toe-tapping bluegrass rock n roll merger will knock years off you!

Darran Worrow, Devizine
