The Furrow Collective – Emily Portman, Alasdair Roberts, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton
Excitement is building around a ballad-based project featuring new folk supergroup of Rachel Newton, Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts. The quartet start their tour at Calstock Arts in support of their new CD release ‘At Our Next Meeting’ released on Furrow Records.
This new collective brings together four of the finest, award winning musicians on the UK folk scene and delves into the obscure world of balladry at its darkest and quirkiest. Each singer airs lesser-known gems from their traditional repertoire with an eclectic backing of harp, guitar, viola, concertina, banjo, musical saw and rousing harmonies.
Emily and Alasdair are both known for their original, folklore-influenced song-writing, and, often finding themselves on the same bills they struck up a musical friendship, sharing stages and collaborating on each others albums. Lucy and Rachel are both bewitching solo artists in their own right as well as being sought-after session players and long-time collaborators with Emily Portman in her trio.
