The New York Times: “The Bookshop Band is not just good but achingly good…
Louis de Bernières, author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin: “The Bookshop Band’s approach to song writing is entirely original, and the results are both surprising and beautiful. They are two talented musicians coming to the same point from different directions.”
Lasting approximately 1 hour, including a Q&A session with The Bookshop Band as they discuss their recent work scoring the new Aardman animated film, scheduled for release this Winter. “We were incredibly fortunate to land a composing job with Aardman Animations over the exact time that Covid stopped our regular live music touring work and spent the best part of 12 months writing music and songs for their 2021 Christmas special Robin Robin. It was a hugely challenging but rewarding experience, developing the music right from the outset of production and continually evolving with the story. The final result is a half hour musical featuring the vocal talents of Gillian Anderson and Richard E Grant, who were both brilliant to work with.”
