“one of the West Midlands most exquisitely talented folk acts” Brumnotes Magazine
Birmingham quintet Boat To Row have earned an outstanding live reputation since their beginnings as a solo project in 2009. They combine a genuine ease in each other's musical company with an energetic, skilfully crafted sound. Their songs play host to winding tales, journeying through light and shade. Expect an intricate set woven with strings and vocal harmonies, layered with an ever-expanding collection of instruments. 

They have supported Slow Club, Willy Mason and Johnny Flynn and have toured with Dog Is Dead and Gemma Hayes. They recently joined Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun and Devon Sproule for dates on their UK tours. This summer saw appearances at 2000 Trees, Lunar, Wood, Behind The Castle, Moseley Folk, Green Man and Cambridge Folk festivals.
Crossroads, Grassmarket and Loyal Light EPs have paved the way for new single ‘Tightrope’. Released on Nocturne Records, it has enjoyed BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing, BBC Shropshire & Cambridgeshire, Amazing Radio and BBC 6 Music play.
