My Darling Spark Pic

All of us in Boat To Row wanted to say a huge Thank You for all of your support this year, it’s been brilliant and we’ve had a great time from releasing our Tightrope single, launching our Nocturne night and fitting in plenty of touring in between working hard on our album!

We’ve put together a new Christmas track, ‘My Darling Spark’, which we recorded ourselves in our practice space and in our living rooms! You can hear the song below and click through to download it for free!

Have a fantastic Christmas and a prosperous New Year, we’ll see you in January!

From Ben, Michael, Anna, Lydia and Hannah!



A few months ago we filmed a couple of new songs on the roof of Highbury studios at the end of a session. These videos were lovingly put together by the wonderful Urban Fox Folk, aka our very own Hannah Fathers. Michael and Anna are joined by Rachel on the cello, Anna’s little sister! A family affair all round. THe songs are ‘Cloudy Skies’ and ‘Passing Thoughts’, two songs in contention for our debut album next year.


We’re really excited that our next Birmingham show at ORT Cafe on December 5th is officially sold out! We’re really excited to play after a quiet few months and for those who are coming we hope you’re looking forward to sticking around for a Christmas party!

To those who missed out, there will be no tickets on the door as we’ve already reached capacity for the venue. Keep checking this site and our social media for new shows next year.


We’re playing our last remaining show of the year at our Nocturne night at Cafe Ort, Birmingham on December 5th and we can’t wait. We’re expanding the ranks for one night only to play with a String Quartet and we’re also being joined by Tom Williams of Tom Williams and The Boat and our good friends Cannon Street. Tickets are £8 and limited to less than 65 so head to the store page of this site before they’re all gone!



We’re heading back to Wales on Saturday 27th September to play at Bangor’s Blue Sky Cafe. We’ll be playing two sets, starting at 8 so come down and watch us play a mix of old and new songs in a stripped back affair!




On Sunday 10th August we will be headlining a free show as part of the Project SoundLounge festival taking part over the whole weekend. We’re over the moon to be playing such an important venue in the town we call home, and to make things better we’re playing with some bands we love, Bonfire Radicals, The Mourning Sons and The Tom Walker Trio.




We’ll be fitting a few shows in between Festivals in June and we’ll be lucky to have the Cadbury Sisters with us for a lot of them. New shows announced today include The Prince Albert in Stroud and Gullivers in Manchester. The poster is again by Dario and details are on the Shows page.



Our good friend Dario has made a poster of our summer festivals, it’s a great mix of old favourites with some upcoming festivals and we’re excited to see you there! Details and tickets on our shows page.
