Congratulations to the ‘Roving Crows’ that won the ‘Band of the Year’ FATEA music award. Other nominees included Bellowhead and duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin.
The Herefordshire based folk-fusion five piece can proudly add this highly sort-after prize to the awards they collected in 2012 – Top Celtic Rock Band and Top Fiddle Player at The Irish Music Awards; Top Folk Act, Exposure Music Awards.
The band are currently on tour with their 2nd album ‘Deliberate Distractions’ which has received 4* reviews in the Financial Times and R2 music magazine. Other reviews have been equally positive with comments such as, ”It’s easy to picture the Roving Crows’ music gathering speed with each successive album tour. Clearly, the Roving Crows are the next folk super group in waiting,” wrote critic Nancy Dunham for Folking.
The bands’ busy tour schedule has grown even fuller as they graced various stages all over the country supporting acts such as Jamie Cullum at the Colston Hall, the Levellers at Lakefest and Kate Rusby at Trowbridge Village Pump Festival amongst many more.
