The Furrow Collective.
The Furrow Collective is a critically acclaimed English/Scottish quartet consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell (fiddle, viola, voice), Rachel Newton (harp, fiddle, voice), Emily Portman (banjo, concertina, voice) and Alasdair Roberts (guitars, voice). The group formed in 2013, drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. They mostly focus upon material from English and Scottish sources, occasionally turning their attentions further afield in their quest for intriguing songs.

We are very pleased to have been featured in the current edition of R2 magazine under the “Venues We Love” section. One of our devotees, Noel Hodgson, very kindly wrote the piece. Here is a quote from the article:- “there is a passionate glow amongst the audiences that brightens the ability of every performer. Inspired by the warmth, interest and encouragement of such a friendly, intimate and family-like atmosphere, it’s no wonder Etal is a venue that artists openly wish to return to.”
