Cross the Border are a heady mix of Celtic tribal rhythms and Anglo-Saxon melody.
Martin Stephenson, Daintees frontman says: “Cross the Border have a special connection on stage, a joy to behold.”
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 as well as drawing from their own personal experiences. Acoustic music for the soul.
Having formed in 2007 the band progressed from playing pubs and clubs to treading the boards at some of the finest UK festivals. Last year saw the band on the bill at Belladrum, Wizard Festival and the Spratton Folk Festival. The band also appeared at legendary Daintees front man – Martin Stephenson’s tribute gig and feature on the tribute album Great North Light with a cover of ‘Lilac Tree’.
