Magpie Lane 25th anniversary celebrations, 2018

Welcome the May posterTwenty five years of Magpie Lane

2018 is the band's 25th anniversary: we released our first album 'The Oxford Ramble' - the brainchild of folk entrepreneur and all round good egg Tim Healey - in April 1993, and played our first ever gig on 3rd May.

The centrepiece for our celebrations was a 25th anniversary Maytime concert at the Holywell Music Room in Oxford.

Photos from the gig

We're also playing at Sidmouth Folk Week, have a number of folk club gigs and - of course - will be back at the Holywell for Christmas.

Oh and there's a new CD on the way...
