The Furrow Collective (Lucy Farrell / Alasdair Roberts)

No Longer Available

We regret to announce that the Furrow Collective will appear in duo rather than the usual quartet form for this week's performance, due to unavoidable circumstances. Alasdair and Lucy look forward to singing and playing for you all, and future performances will feature the full quartet line-up.

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 the England, Scotland and beyond and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. In recognition of their innovative approach, The Furrow Collective were awarded the accolade of 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 'Best Group', hot on the heels of the release in late 2016 of their second album, Wild Hog (also on Hudson Records).

The Furrow Collective tours extensively throughout the UK as well as in mainland Europe, delighting audiences with their uniquely beguiling approach to traditional song.

“A bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs... A quietly classy young folk band” – Guardian

“The Furrow Collective have an air of immeasurable antiquity, while at the same time making the songs vibrantly new.” – R2

“One of the finest collaborative albums of the past few years.” – Folk Radio UK
