Celebrating their 25th year on the road, The Poozies, one of the longest-standing UK folk groups, are performing at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on March 15.

The band has a reputation as pioneers and trail-blazers, not only by being the first all-female folk band on the scene, but also because of the ease with which they unashamedly crossed folk with pop, soul, country and Scottish Gaelic.

Their unique sound is a powerful combination of rhythmic, punching acoustic guitar, growling electro-harp, and dexterous fiddle and accordion, with spine-tingling songs in four-part harmony.

Founder members Sally Barker (guitar) – who reached the 2014 final of BBC1’s The Voice, mentored by Sir Tom Jones – and Mary Macmaster (harp), feature alongside Mairearad Green (accordion) and Eilidh Shaw (fiddle), delivering spine-tingling multi-instrumentals and tight four-piece harmony vocals.

The band released their most recent album, Into The Well, in May 2015.
