Introducing…Bear Bones

Bear
 Bones is 
an 
8 
piece 
ensemble 
of
 accordion, 
brass, 
bells, 
banjo,
 strings, 
drums 
and 
voices, 
is 
the
 realisation 
of 
a 
project 
started
 by 
Ben 
Harrison.
 After 
growing
 up 
on
 a 
remote 
Hebridean
 Scottish 
Island, 

Ben 
moved 
to Glasgow
 and 
started 
writing 
songs 
inspired 
by 
his 
island 
home 
and 
the 
life 
he 
led
 there.

The 
band’s 
first 
single Oil 
& 
Lacquer quietly 
became
 a 
must‐have 
record 
amongst
 Scottish 
music‐lovers 
and 
put 
them 
at 
the 
fore 
of 
Glasgow’s 
burgeoning 
folk 
scene.
 Their 
second, 
eagerly 
awaited 
single 
Diving
 Bell, 
released
 through
 Eli 
and 
Oz on
 December 
5th, 
is 
full 
of 
the 
rousing 
choruses 
and 
sincere 
lyricism
 that 
Bear 
Bones are 
already 
becoming 
known 
for, 
and 
might 
well 
be 
the
 record 
to 
spill 
the 
secret 
of
 one 
of 
Scotland’s 
most 
exciting 
new 
bands.
