Rachel Newton, Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts
Voices, guitar, harp, viola, concertina, saw and banjo.
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, 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, they released their new album ‘Wild Hog’ on Hudson Records, November 2016 to huge critical acclaim.
We are delighted to welcome The Furrow Collective back to Belfast after an unforgettable performance in September 2015. We can’t recommend this gig highly enough. They are surely one of the most compelling folk bands working today.
