The Poozies

The Poozies have been ambassadors of women in folk music for over 15 years, taking us through an exciting, breakthrough in folk-rock fusion with founder-member Sally Barker, to Kate Rusby to fiddler and Gaelic singer Eilidh Shaw. Now, they've gone full circle, and Sally Barker has re-joined the band making it a 5-piece and bringing back a blues-ier feel. Journey through a fantastical landscape where you are led by the nylon and metal strung harps of Patsy Seddon and Mary Macmaster. Even more spine-tingling are the close vocal harmonies which intensify the songs. Add to all this Karen Tweed's amazingly dextrous accordion playing and Eilidh Shaw's fiddling and Gaelic songs and you have possibly the most eclectic folk band working on the UK touring circuits today.
