The Magpie Arc 2022

A cross-Border band out of Sheffield and Scotland

The Magpie Arc is a cross-Border band out of Sheffield and Scotland featuring the multi-award-winning talents and wide musical influences of Nancy Kerr, Findlay Napier, Tom Wright, Alex Hunter and MarƟn Simpson (on electric guitar!).

Formed from the idea of bringing together a group of established folk musicians who would mix their song-writing styles and musicianship in a full-on electric band to create exciting new music and update the classic 60’s and 70’s British folk/rock sound, the possibilities of The Magpie Arc being something special and unique on today’s folk scene became obvious very quickly.

Having three strong writers the focus has naturally been on new material, however they’ve also tackled some great covers plus their own re-workings of traditional songs. There’s folk and rock, some country and even blues, but whatever the genre the band are already proving to be a musical mix of everything you could expect from such a line-up, with excellent songs, lush harmonies, scything electric guitars, gorgeous fiddle lines and rock solid bass and drums.

With twelve songs recorded just before “you know what” hit, the band released a trio of four track EP's on their own label in late 2020/early 2021 and since then have been recording songs for their first full length album which will be released in Summer 2022.

The growing buzz about the band and the anticipation amongst those in the know will all become clear very soon as they hit UK festival stages this summer and tour dates round the country later in the year.
