We had a lot of fun playing at the Roots Folk Festival on Thursday 22nd August. It was great to play with the lovely and wonderfully talented Sarah MacGregor again. Here's a video of us playing one of our new songs.
Join Gallus Crows for our only performance at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, in an intimate "house concert" setting. We'll be playing songs from our debut album "Year Of The Crow" and some new ones too.
We had an amazing time at our Year Of The Crow album launch on 9th March. Huge thanks go to our special guests Si Cousins and The Lost Hubcaps (Neil Hamilton and Bruce & Gill Hogg) for their fantastic sets, and to Sarah MacGregor for joining us with her wonderful fiddle playing.
Today is Chinese New Year - the Year of the Pig. What better day to announce the release of our debut album "YEAR OF THE CROW"?
You can buy a CD copy of the album from our shop, from Captain's Bar (Edinburgh), and from members of the band. The album is also available for download/streaming at all the usual places - Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Deezer, etc.
We're holding an album launch event in Edinburgh on Saturday 9th March, with some superb special guests. Some of the launch will also be live-streamed on Facebook. See the Facebook Event for full details. Hope to see you there.
Happy New Year!

Big thanks to our friend Therese McGuire who took these videos of us performing at the Loanhead Festival Concert on 10th June. We were joined for these songs by Bruce & Gill Hogg (on slide guitar and percussion) and the final video features Bruce talking about the Gallus Crows t-shirts we had made for them.
Deek and Gogzy Crow had a grand time doing the sound and announcing at the Saturday event. There was a wonderful array of talent on display at the open mic event and the songwriters competition. Big thanks to everyone who took part - the artists, competition judges, organisers, craft fair folks, workshop tutors, bar staff and anyone else we might have forgotten.
We had a lot of fun at the launch of our debut release, "The Langdale EP" at The Captain's Bar on Saturday night. Thanks to the lovely people at Captain's for letting us host our launch event at the bar.
We've released the first 100 copies of the EP as a limited edition USB stick, featuring 4 original songs (one written by each member of the band), a Gallus Crows button badge, a video for "Take Me Back To Liverpool" and a link to "The Game Of Crows" - an online game which allows you to unlock special prizes!
Update May 2019 - The USB stick edition of the EP is now sold out, but you can purchase a copy of the CD from our Online Shop.
We will be launching our "Langdale" EP in Edinburgh at The Captain's Bar, South College Street, Edinburgh on Saturday 28th May at 8pm. After the launch we'll be doing our regular monthly gig/session from 9pm til 12:30 am. Hope to see you there!
We had a wonderful time at the Langdale Charity Folk Festival over the weekend. It was so nice to hear all the other acts, catch up with old friends and make new ones and soak in the atmosphere and the sunshine! The festival raised nearly £4,000 for excellent local charities and we are honoured to have done our bit.
Big thanks to everyone who bought a copy of our debut release, "The Langdale EP". Kieron's song "Langdale" went down a storm and it was lovely to play it at the closing session on Sunday night with everyone singing along.
Here's a video of us performing "Langdale" at the Friday night bar concert. Big thanks to Rachael Dyson for filming it!
