Described by MOJO as ‘a mouthwatering collaboration’, Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton are four fine soloists sharing a mutual love of traditional songs, from both sides of the English and Scottish borders, with playful, boundary-defying musicianship.

Since their critically acclaimed debut At Our Next Meeting, The Furrow Collective has been in demand as a touring band, gigging throughout Europe and performing BBC live sessions. Having just been crowned winners of the 2017 Folk Awards ‘Best Group’ , the band have released an outstanding five track EP Blow out the Moon last autumn, coinciding with touring, offering a tempting taster of their next album.

‘A bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs… A quietly classy young folk band’ Guardian

‘One of the finest collaborative albums of the past few years’ Folk Radio UK

Support comes from Orkney songwriter Merlyn Driver.
