Whats on

Many events take place throughout the year here at St. George’s.  Keep checking back for more information.

This is an event hosted by New Mills Festival and Visit New Mills.

The Roving Crows, who have cultivated an arresting, singular sound that pushes the boundaries of the Celtic Folk genre, will be performing in the stunning setting of St. George’s Church, New Mills, on Friday 20th March 2020, for the latest of New Mills Festival’s always-popular folk gigs.

Tickets for the gig, which are just £13 in advance, are available from Priscilla’s Hallmark Cards in Market Street, New Mills, online at www.newmillsfestival.co.uk or by phone by calling 07753 842861. Any tickets remaining on the night will be £15 on the door. Doors will open at 7.30pm and there will be a licensed bar at the gig serving locally-brewed real ale from Torrside and Rock Mill Breweries, as well as wine, lager, cider and soft drinks

Since launching in 2009, the Roving Crows have made their mark on the folk and roots scene in the UK, as well as abroad, performing internationally in Australia, Ireland, France and Portugal. They push the boundaries of the Celtic Folk genre and play with genuine passion, energy and soul. Vital and vibrant, a must see live act who showcase a vibrant mix of fiery, Celtic-inspired fiddle, conscious, intelligent lyrics, backed by pounding tribal rhythms and electronica infused dance grooves. Their live show is guaranteed to get any crowd dancing.

The band were awarded International Artist of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards in 2017, Band of the Year in the 2014 FATEA Music Awards and Best Live Act in the Spiral Awards in the same year. Previous accolades include the Irish Music Association Awards for Top Celtic Rock Band and Top Fiddle Player.

With a growing reputation for hosting popular folk gigs and bringing a host of talented musicians and bands to the High Peak, New Mills Festival’s folk gigs are often a sell out, so we advise you to purchase tickets soon so as to avoid disappointment.
