Last chance to see Midnight Skyracer live at Folk Festival
Although a bittersweet announcement, Midnight Skyracer have confirmed this year will be their farewell tour.
The band have come a long way in a very short time…Since forming in 2017, the Anglo-Irish all-female quintet have become festival sensations across the UK, Europe and Australasia, toured regularly at home and released a critically-lauded debut album. They also carry the distinction of being the first British act nominated for an award by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Not only are they all masters of their respective instruments, but the vocal harmonies shared between the five women are second to none.
However, the bittersweet news of their departure came last Friday when they announced that this would be their final tour…. for now. It seems a number of factors including that of growing pressures and commitments of family life and geographical restrictions between band members have impacted the band’s decision.
“It’s been over two years now since we’ve all been together, doing what we love, and we CANNOT WAIT to get out on tour in June! Huge thanks to our agent Ant at Fancourt Music for working so hard to get this together after so much disruption.
We have thoroughly enjoyed playing together and performing to such great audiences both in person and online these past five years. In a short time, we’ve achieved a lot and made music that we’re all proud of. However, with growing families, growing geographical distances, complications of travel restrictions and increased costs surrounding that, it’s becoming harder and harder to make it work as a band.
So, it’s with heavy hearts that we have reached the decision to say farewell… for now. We’d love to see as many of you as possible at these shows – let’s go out with a bang!”
It certainly sounds like they’ll be putting on an extraordinary show for one of their final stops on the tour in Wolverhampton. Make sure you grab a ticket to the Folk Festival on Saturday 25th June to see this sensational band, joined by Eddi reader, Tom McConville & Dave Newey.
