All-female, contemporary Scottish folk band The Poozies have been pushing musical boundaries for over 25 years and since the release of their latest, Trad Award nominated album, ‘Punch’, they have been enjoying a whirlwind of festivals, tours and celebrity occasions. The new line-up has been hailed as the best and most exciting yet, and sees founder member Mary Macmaster and long-term cohort Eilidh Shaw joined by Orkney’s Sarah McFadyen and Tia Files from Oban. Expect exhilarating sets of original tunes and an eclectic mix of songs, all bursting with energy, seduction, rascality and invention.

“…What a mighty sound they make for a four-piece! It’s both bewitching and scary, for there’s also a sinister alchemy at work between the four very different (and self-confessedly off-kilter!) musical personalities – and a keen sense of delicious mischief to boot.” fRoots Magazine
