Stornoway / May 2015 English Tour

Oxford folk rock quartet and birdwatching enthusiasts Stornoway have joined with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to present the first ever “Nature Reserves Tour” of England later this month.  In the official tour date announcement from last week, frontman Brian Briggs invites:

“Come hear us play a mix of new and old material completely unplugged on a May evening against the backdrop of the evening bird song. I’ll even point out any interesting wildlife that we see or hear. Come and have a wander around the reserve beforehand too and see what the RSPB is doing for nature.”

Ahead of the Suffolk show, the band will appear on BBC’s Springwatch Unsprung at RSPB Minsmere hosted by wildlife presenter Chris Packham.  Tickets for the following live shows are on sale now and are extremely limited, with only 40 tickets available for Suffolk and Essex, and 100 available for Bedfordshire.

Friday 29th May 2015 – Suffolk RSPB Minsmere
Saturday 30th May 2015 – Bedfordshire RSPB The Lodge
Sunday 31st May 2015 – Essex RSPB Rainham Marshes
