Summer by the River: Bird In The Belly
Bird In The Belly are a hugely exciting 4-piece new-folk collective. They have spent the last year recording songs and stories rarely, if ever, recorded, in the hopes of reintroducing them back into the folk canon. The resulting debut album 'The Crowing' (2018) received critical acclaim, with the Sunday Express calling it “album of the year” (★★★★★).
Gig highlights include Manchester Folk Festival, Leigh Folk Festival, Tooting Folk Club and Ropetackle Arts Centre. The group are currently working on a feature length documentary about the contemporary folk scene to support ‘The Crowing’, featuring June Tabor, Frankie Armstrong, Stick in the Wheel, Ian Anderson (fRoots Editor), Lisa Knapp, Gerry Diver, Naomi Bedford, The Rails and more.
