BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners The Furrow Collective will play a gig in Dorset on Thursday, March 1.

Described by MOJO Magazine as ‘a mouthwatering collaboration’, Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton are four successful soloists who share a mutual love of traditional song and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. Their distinctive voices come together to create a sound that is uniquely beguiling and truly beautiful.

Best Group winners at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Furrow Collective, the band has gone from strength to strength since releasing their second album Wild Hog on Hudson Records.

The album was described as a ‘winningly produced masterclass in folk tradition’ by the Observer and received several five star reviews, including fRoots and Songlines magazines. They are currently working on their third album and will be premiering some of the songs on the Spring tour ahead of its release later in the year.

*Furrow Collective, Shelley Theatre, Bournemouth, Thursday, March 1, 7.30pm. Call the box office for tickets and more information.
