The Furrow Collective is an English/Scottish band consisting of four talented and individually prominent performers: Lucy Farrell (viola, voice & saw), Rachel Newton (harp, fiddle, voice), Emily Portman (banjo, concertina, voice) and Alasdair Roberts (guitars, voice). The group formed in 2013, drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry of England, Scotland and beyond, and an open intuitive approach to collaboration.
In recognition of this innovative approach, The Furrow Collective were awarded the accolade of 'Best Group' at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, hot on the heels of the release in late 2016 of their second album, Wild Hog.
As the bleak winter nights draw in, The Furrow Collective have chosen a special festive programme to celebrate the dark time of year. Come in, friends, from the howling wind and bitter frost, draw a little closer to the roaring fire and prepare to be bewitched by eerie story-songs and seasonal carols that revel in the strange and wonderful traditions of these isles.
With The Furrow Collective's signature spine-tingling harmonies and masterful storytelling bringing a spark of light into the wintry gloom, this promises to be an unmissable evening.
‘A bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs... A quietly classy young folk band’
