Band of burns


Band of Burns is the newest of Alastair's projects. Conceived along with Oddbeats colleague Dila Vardar and Langan Band manager Sophie Bostock, they put together 12 of their favourite folk musicians from their time on the circuit to create a super-group. The band came together under the banner of Burns Night, and celebrate the works and philosophies of Robert Burns. Alastair is the Musical Director of the group.

After two sell-out shows in Union Chapel, London, and Trinity Arts Centre, Bristol, the band are about to release their debut album, 'Live from Union Chapel', for which they raised over £10,000 through crowdfunding. There is going to be another tour of the band in January 2018, including gigs back at Union Chapel, and Celtic Connections in Glasgow
