The Poozies began their auspicious odyssey over 20 years ago, when folk music wore elaborately patterned woolly jumpers and was only seen in dingy back rooms and very late at night on BBC2. From the word ‘go’ they were breaking out and happily exploring the musical universe. The Poozie recipe is a fragrant casserole of invention, creative interpretation and melodic mastery, sprinkled with the spice of open-mindedness, a combination that has made them consistently turn heads since the 1990s.

The passion of Sally Barker’s unique voice is reinforced by the percussive power of her rock solid guitar; irresistible energy bursts from Eilidh Shaw’s fiddle and Mairearad Green’s delicately dexterous accordion; all dramatically grounded by the growling groove of Mary Macmaster’s Camac electro harp; and magnificently rounded off by the blending of four voices in heart-wrenching harmony.

The Poozies have been described as the “UK’s finest all-female outfit” and “Britain’s premiere Celtic roots all-woman super-group.” Come and see why.

“A force to be reckoned with on the traditional folk scene… fantastic vocal harmonies and spectacular instrumentals.”– Folk Radio UK

“The instrumental power combined with (their) voices is remarkable”– Scotland on Sunday
