Globe Stage- 18.00 Sunday 9 July
Powerful Celtic undertones and intoxicating tribal rhythms
Roving Crows push the boundaries of the Celtic Folk genre and play with genuine passion, energy and soul – a must see live act.
A vibrant mix of Celtic-inspired fiddle alongside original and intelligent lyrics backed by pounding, tribal and electronica infused dance grooves; the band comprises fiddle, electric and acoustic guitar, electric 5 and 6 string bass, pumping bongo percussion rhythms and vocals.
As well as almost constant national touring, the band has released 2 albums and 2 EPs since their launch in 2009. The most recent album ‘Deliberate Distractions’ received 4* reviews in the Financial Times and R2 Magazine amongst many more.
They are set to release their upcoming album ‘Bury Me Naked’ at the Gloucester Guildhall in April 2017 with full PR support from Jane Brace.
