English folk music crosses borders: Next month – thanks to the Scottish Arts Council Tune Up touring scheme – Spiers & Boden will hit the road with their first full tour of Scotland on a double-headline bill with Orkney traditional Scottish duo Saltfishforty. Look out for them at Oran Mor in Glasgow, The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, Eden Court in Inverness, An Lanntair in Stornoway and more. See their website for full details.
Then in March 2011 they will take on their first tour of Ireland, with four dates in Northern Ireland with a quick trip south to the Seamus Ennis Centre in Naul on March 25th. More details to be released on the website nearer the time.
