The Furrow Collective by Elly Lucas 2 small

Nominated ‘Best Traditional Track’ with The Unquiet Grave and Emily was nominated for ‘Folk Singer Of The Year’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016.

Nominated ‘Best Group’ & ‘Best Traditional Track’

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2015

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, from both sides of the English and Scottish borders, 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 have released an outstanding five track EP Blow out the Moon last autumn, coinciding with touring, offering a tempting taster of their next album.

Each band member leads a song, moving with ease from jaunty stories of ailing horses, to poignant laments and sparsely adorned supernatural ballads. Blow Out the Moon culminates with the beautiful title track, a lullaby in spine-tingling four-part harmony. Strikingly unaffected vocals are accompanied by harp, guitar, viola, concertina, piano, banjo, fiddles and musical saw. Blow Out the Moon reflects the breadth of the Furrow Collective’s diversity whilst showing a crystallisation of their unique sound. It gives a taste of great things to come with the forthcoming release of their single ‘Wild Hog in the Woods’ out in March and the second full length album arriving later on in 2016.

‘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
