Folk supergroup springs out of the co-operative music project Burnsong
Out of co-operative music project ‘Burnsong’ springs The Burns Unit, a band best described as a ‘folk supergroup’ — although such a title conveys a false sense of egotism about the members involved. The roster includes some of the shining lights of indie-folk nobility: King Creosote, Karine Polwart and Emma Pollock all lend their considerable talents, alongside Indo-Caledonian pop artist Future Pilot AKA, virtuosic rapper MC Soom T and a few other contributors.
In Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, Mon 9 Aug
