The Furrow Collective

featuring Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts

Critically acclaimed, award-winning English/Scottish folk group The Furrow Collective are heading out on tour in the UK in December 2023, in support of their fourth full-length album We Know by the Moon on Hudson Records. Usually a quartet, they will tour as a trio due to the happy news that Rachel is expecting a baby at the end of November.

Each of the group’s three previous albums has marked a distinct development of their music, whilst retaining its idiosyncratic core of resonant bowed and plucked strings anchoring sky-bound harmony singing; the fourth will mark a further expansion of this unique trademark sound. Recorded in midsummer 2023 and due for release in winter 2023, the record will span the seasons to link the solstices in harmony, in the form of a suite of noctilucent laments, lunar serenades and starlit balladry.

Running time: 2 x 50 mins + interval
