The Long Way Home

The landmark new release sees the band returning to their musical folk roots.

‘Immaculately packaged, beautifully produced, finely recorded' and ‘a thoughtful album of warm shades and lower temperature that sounds surprisingly…well…folkie’ - Colin Irwin, fRoots

"Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act"
