Energetic Gloucestershire five-piece ‘Roving Crows’ are launching their new EP at the Gloucester Guildhall on Saturday, March 14 at their annual Paddy’s Day Extravaganza, always a first-class show, not to be missed.
Change is afoot for the band, and this gig sees the last performance from Greg their trumpet player and Tim the drummer, but also the launch of their next EP titled ‘Up Heaval’, which will give a taste of their new direction.
Roving Crows are an original must-see act, with roots in Folk and Celtic music. Renowned for their high-energy live performance, their shows pull together funked up traditional tunes and catchy original songs. The band comprises fiddle, guitar, trumpet, bass, drums and vocals.
As well as almost constant national touring, the band has released two albums and two EPs since their launch in 2009. The most recent album ‘Deliberate Distractions’ received 4* reviews in the ‘Financial Times’ and ‘R2 Magazine’ among many more. Support on the night will come from The No-Good Nancys.
Roving Crows will also be performing at Brewery Blues, Kings Head, Cirencester, on Saturday, March 7.
