Cross the Border is a heady mix of Celtic tribal rhythms and Anglo-Saxon melody. Coming from a mix of rock and blues backgrounds the band progressed effortlessly to folk music. From the heartfelt tenderness of ‘Ghost’ to the raucous drinking song ‘Black Dog’ the band explore themes such as war, knife culture, and brotherhood as well as drawing from their own personal experiences. It’s acoustic music for the soul.
