The announcement of the new tour comes after the band’s recent live session on BBC Radio 2’s Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe.
‘We’re delighted to be taking Continuum back out on the road again in Spring,’ says accordionist and clog dancer, Amy Thatcher, ‘playing for people up and down the country is our real passion and we’re so pleased that the album has captured so many people’s hearts and minds.’
