With the forthcoming release of our new album out in the autumn we have decided to perform under our own names.


Have a look at our new website www.forbesmoncrieff.co.uk

Traditional folk weaving beautiful traditional songs
with their own unique style.

From beguiling ballads to stomping sea shanties
The Raven engage audiences with their own distinctive
style firmly rooted in a love of the English tradition,
unacompanied song, beautiful harmony, guitar,
flute and concertina subtly accompany wonderful
songs and let the songs tell their own tales.
Songs to sing along to and songs with a story to tell.

Over the last couple of years The Raven have been
busy developing their own unique style of dark
ballads, stomping tunes and beguiling songs from
the English tradition, captivating audiences with their
warm engaging set. Growing in confidence with
their performance they have been invited to support
many on the folk scene including Lucy Ward,
Spiers and Boden, Kerr and Fagan,
Pilgrim's Way, Faustus and more.
