Sparrow and the Workshop are put simply- an amazing band.

They are clearly making music which harks back to another era, yet it never feels dated, leaving it hard to put a finger on what exactly they sound like. What could have been a pastiche of sounds and influences is not, due to certain individual flourishes. With many musicians claiming to be folk-faced these days to jump on the band wagon of Fleet Foxes and co, its refreshing to hear something more authentic and clearly a product of the heart.

Recently the band completed support tours with both Idlewild + The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Debut album "Crystals Fall" is out now!

Good band and really nice folks. They deserve an audience.

A sort of less dreamy, more folky Mazzy Star if you want a reference point. Jill's voice is sumptuous. She's rather nice aesthetically, too.

I really love these guys.

First saw them supporting Idlewild in December a year or so ago (maybe even just xmas past) and thought they were awesome. Love the girls voice and the harmonies.

I think well be opening up playing the solo material on this date and looks like well be doing Inverness also.

I know its miles away but tickets from here:
