The Magpies – Making Waves Wherever They Play (Phil Beer)

10 September @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm


It has only been a short space of time since The Magpies burst onto the UK folk scene, but they have already made a huge impact with their fresh brand of transatlantic neo-folk and have been ‘making waves wherever they play’ (Phil Beer, Show of Hands). Following the success of their debut album last year, this September will see the trio return to the road, with a 16-date UK tour across England, Scotland and Wales.

Audiences can expect an eclectic variety of material.  From Celtic to Americana, traditional to modern folk.   The Magpies songwriting is uplifting and unconstrained by orthodoxy.  They take traditional folk songs and bring them crashing into the 21st century in an exciting and refreshing way.  The enthusiasm and joy they bring to a live performance is contagious.  Close female harmonies and high octane tunes with a pumping rhythm are a recipe for a great and inspiring night out.
