Contemporary Celtic Folk Music
After winning International Artist of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards in 2017 the band completed a 3 week tour in Australia in May last year supported by the UK Arts Council.
Roving Crows push the boundaries of the Celtic Folk genre and play with genuine passion, energy and soul – a must see live act.
Since launching in 2009 Roving Crows have been making their mark on the folk and roots scene in the UK as well as International tours to Australia, Ireland, France and in 2019 to Portugal where the band will be welcomed to renowned folk festival Costa Del Folk. Roving Crows have their roots in Irish and Country music with upbeat Irish tunes and dynamic song-writing being at the forefront of their live performance. Fiddle, vocals and guitar are backed by vibrant fretless bass and eclectic percussion to create an energetic and inspiring stage show.
As well as almost constant national touring, the band has released 3 albums and 2 EPs since their launch in 2009. The most recent album ‘Bury Me Naked’ was released in April 2017 at the Gloucester Guildhall and has received some fantastic reviews:
