MUSIC fans are getting the chance to see a performance by the band voted the Best Group in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017.

Furrow Collective

The Furrow Collective is playing Paisley Arts Centre, this Sunday, June 18 at 7.30pm.

And not only did they lift the group accolade at the Radio 2 Folk Awards, band member Rachel Newton won Musician of the Year.

The group is made up of four soloists – Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton – who combine to create a band that shows their collective love of tradition music.

The Furrow Collective has been in demand as a touring band, gigging throughout Europe and performing BBC live sessions. They released their latest album ‘Wild Hog’ on Hudson Records last year to critical acclaim.

Each band member leads a song, moving with ease from jaunty stories of ailing horses, to poignant laments and sparsely adorned supernatural ballads.

Tickets, at £10 and £8 concessions, are still available for the gig by logging on to or calling 0300 300 1210 or from Paisley Arts Centre on the night.
