Details

Powerful Celtic undertones and intoxicating tribal rhythm
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:
"An adventurous and inspired heady cocktail of Celtic and World music with a social conscience and a beating heart." - Mike Davies - Folking.com - April 2017

"they’re a band capable of delivering a uniquely inspiring style." - Duncan Haskell - Songwritng Magazine - April 2017

“...epic treatment of Ride On...”
"They will do well on the festival circuit." - Robin Denselow - The Guardian - April 2017

FolkWords Album Of The Month March 2017
“...innovative, vivacious, pulsating Celtic folk rock” - Tim Carroll - FolkWords - March 2017

After winning International Artist of the Year at the 2017 Australian Celtic Music Awards, they are looking forward to their forthcoming tour in Australia during May 2018.
