Buriers are an English alternative folk band led by James P Honey – an accomplished singer and poet – who blend folk and spoken word elements together. Their melodic blend of guitar, cello and violin, combined with a beautiful female backing choir compliments the abstract and imaginative poetry of their lyrics, resulting in grand songs fractured with a fragile beauty.
The Buriers album, entitled Filth, is available to buy on CD, vinyl and mp3 from the store as well as all good online shops (and some of the charlatan ones as well).
