‘Do you need cheering up? Have recent world events events been getting you down??? Well what can we say?! It’s been an amazing start to 2017 for us so far, we got such and warm and appreciative response to our opening slot at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards last month, playing in front of that capacity crowd in the Royal Albert Hall must be one of the highlights of our career and now it’s just been announced we have won the Songlines Best group Award! This was a public vote so we really DO owe this one to all our friends and fans who made it happen. We really couldn’t have done this without you all! We will be accepting the award at Womad where we will be headlining the Charly Gillet stage on the Saturday night so if we don’t see you there make sure to come to one of our November tour shows and say Hello afterwards. We will have as our special guests The Dhol Foundation so it’ll be a night full of energy! Once again thank you all for voting for us in the Songlines awards and see you all soon.
Love, light and unity
