Local band announce UK tour


The Rough Island Band are to embark on a UK tour in November.

The St Agnes-based group - John Elliott, Joe Keelan, Piers Lewin and James Sills - recorded their latest album in their island studio in April.

This Island of Yours…, their fourth studio album, will be released to their Pledge Music supporters on August 31, with a general release on October 13th.

Described as a 'deeply personal response to the islands', it includes poetry, photographs, stories and spoken word submitted by followers, which have been 'woven into the fabric of the album by RIB and collated as a physical scrapbook to accompany the recordings'.

The This Island of Yours… tour, which runs from November 10 - 18, will include music from the new album alongside highlights chosen from their first three albums Sou’Wester Sessions (2010), Where To? (2011) and On All Sides (2014).

Full venue and ticket details will be announced in September.

Rough Island Band are a contemporary folk quartet playing original music inspired by the landscapes, people and stories of the Isles of Scilly.
