Northern Irish troubadour extraordinaire Foy Vance has announced a string of late autumn live dates in the UK and Ireland, in support of his upcoming new album ‘The Wild Swan’. The album is due out on the 13th of May via Ed Sheeran‘s record label Gingerbread Man Records, and editor Mary recently featured the album’s lead promo for ‘She Burns’ as our Video of the Moment #2071.
