About the eventDescribed by MOJO Magazine as ‘a mouthwatering collaboration’, Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton are four successful soloists who share a mutual love of traditional song and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. Their distinctive voices come together to create a sound that is uniquely beguiling and truly beautiful.
Best Group winners at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Furrow Collective are delighted to announce their Spring 2018 tour. This will be a wide-reaching tour, from Bournemouth to Shetland and finishing on the 25th March at one of their favourite London venues - Kings Place. The band have gone from strength to strength since releasing their second album Wild Hog on Hudson Records. The album was described as a ‘winningly produced masterclass in folk tradition’ by the Observer and received several five star reviews, including fRoots and Songlines magazines. They are currently working on their third album and will be premiering some of the songs on the Spring tour ahead of its release later in the year.
