 The ROVING CROWS

Powerful Celtic undertones and intoxicating tribal rhythms

After winning International Artist of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards in 2017 the band completed a 3 week tour in Australia this May 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.

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 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:
