The Furrow Collective
Date: 16th June 2017
Details:  Smaller Rooms presents: The Furrow Collective

Nominated ‘Best Traditional Track’ with The Unquiet Grave and Emily was nominated for ‘Folk Singer Of The Year’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016.

Nominated ‘Best Group’ & ‘Best Traditional Track’

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2015

Rachel Newton, Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts

Voices, guitar, harp, viola, concertina, saw and banjo.

Described by MOJO as 'a mouthwatering collaboration', Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton are four fine soloists sharing a mutual love of traditional songs, from both sides of the English and Scottish borders, with playful, boundary-defying musicianship. Since their critically acclaimed debut At Our Next Meeting, The Furrow Collective has been in demand as a touring band, gigging throughout Europe and performing BBC live sessions. Hot on the heels of two BBC Folk Award nominations, they have released an outstanding five track EP Blow out the Moon last autumn, coinciding with touring, offering a tempting taster of their next album.

Each band member leads a song, moving with ease from jaunty stories of ailing horses, to poignant laments and sparsely adorned supernatural ballads. Blow Out the Moon culminates with the beautiful title track, a lullaby in spine-tingling four-part harmony. Strikingly unaffected vocals are accompanied by harp, guitar, viola, concertina, piano, banjo, fiddles and musical saw. Blow Out the Moon reflects the breadth of the Furrow Collective’s diversity whilst showing a crystallisation of their unique sound.

‘A bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs... A quietly classy young folk band’ Guardian

‘The Furrow Collective have an air of immeasurable antiquity, while at the same time making the songs vibrantly new’. R2

The Prince Experience
Date: 17th June 2017
Details:  Last year we lost Prince, one of the most prolific and controversial musical icons of all time, it seems there's nothing this man couldn't do, and because there was only one PRINCE, there's only one Prince tribute band, The Prince Experience.

The nine piece Prince Experience is made up of some amazing musicians who all have one thing in common - they are huge fans of the music. This love is clear to see, and of course heard when the band perform. Fast becoming known as 'the tightest live band out there, they play with a passion that is undeniable, you won't believe your ears once the music starts. Jaw breaking high notes, screams and high heels, wailing guitar solos, linn drums, loops, funky funky bass, live horns, and that famous 'purple' sense of humour. Only The Prince Experience have the audacity, and the musicianship to do justice to the music of the purple genius, it all comes together in an incredible onstage explosion of hits, from the floor shaking 1999, through the era defining soundtrack from the movie Purple Rain, right through the hits of the 90s, and beyond. One thing is for sure, you better bring your comfortable shoes, because you WILL be dancing. Celebrate the music of Prince with The Prince Experience.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

Doors: 7:30pm

Tickets: £14 ADV/£17 OTD
