The Furrow Collective

'A mouth-watering collaboration' (4 Stars MOJO)

'One of the finest collaborative albums of the past few years' (Folk Radio UK)

'A quietly thrilling approach to traditional song' (R2 Magazine)

Recently nominated for Best Group at the 2017 BBC Folk Awards (along with a Best Musician nomination for Rachel Newton), The Furrow Collective are simultaneously veterans of the UK folk scene and rising stars among an exciting new wave of artists. As a live act they are truly stunning to behold and this is a rare chance to behold four prodigiously talented musicians work their collective magic in the magnificent & intimate setting of the Little Museum Of Dublin.

The Furrow Collective is a critically acclaimed English/Scottish quartet consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell (fiddle, viola, voice), 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 and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. They mostly focus upon material from English and Scottish sources, occasionally turning their attentions further afield in their quest for intriguing songs.

November 2016 saw the release of the group's second album, Wild Hog, on new label Hudson Records. Produced by Andy Bell and building on the success of its predecessor, Wild Hog shows a marked development in the group's sound and approach, featuring guest musicians Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells) on drums and Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell) on double bass.
