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. Hot on the heels of two BBC Folk Award nominations, in November 2016 they released their new album, Wild Hog, to huge critical acclaim. Each band member leads a song, moving with ease from jaunty stories of ailing horses to poignant laments and sparsely adorned supernatural ballads.

Pete Says: Yet another ‘supergroup’ visiting us for the first time. It was no surprise that they won the ‘best band’ category at the 2017 BBC Folk Awards. I was pleased, as they were already booked for this performance. A night of really special music is guaranteed.
