A MULTI-AWARD winning band will be appearing live at a Welwyn Garden City pub this weekend.
Herefordshire-based original Celtic folk-fusion outfit The Roving Crows are due to perform at The Green Room, at The Doctors Tonic, on Saturday, July 13.
A spokeswoman for the venue said: “The Green Room is looking to branch out from our normal genre of metal, rock and punk, so we are very excited to be putting on a folk night and are hoping to generate some local interest as there are a lot of very good young up-and-coming folk singers that we would like to bring to the masses.
“We also have a big band swing night coming later in the month.
“Suffice to say, The Green Room is looking forward to seeing some new names on its roster in the coming months.”
First up are The Roving Crows, who have a busy summer ahead with slots at Cambridge Folk Festival, Trowbridge Village Pump Festival and many more around the country.
The Crows’ inexhaustible energy and ability to connect with the audience make them ones to watch.
They fuse folk, ska, reggae and klezmer in a unique and energetic performance.
Through 2012 The Crows won three international music accolades – top Celtic Rock Band and Top Fiddle Player at The Irish Music Awards and Top Folk Act at the Exposure Music Awards. They also recorded and produced their album Bacchanalia at Rockfield Studios with producer Nick Brine.
The album received national airplay on both Paul O’Grady and Mike Harding’s BBC radio shows.
Support at their Welwyn Garden City gig will come from The Kingston Inn and Andy & Phil. Doors open at 8pm and tickets are £5.
