Award-winning band The Outside Track head to Mull this month on a musical mission to promote gender equality in the folk scene.

Fronted by four powerhouse women, the band are embarking on their fifth studio album, Rise Up, featuring songs and tunes all by or about women, including 11 female composers.

They will play An Tobar , Tobermory, on Tuesday June 19.

The Outside Track have headlined at many festivals, winning a
multitude of fans with their high-energy performances.

They are recent winners of ‘Best Group’ in both the Live Ireland awards and the Tradition In Review awards.

Fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, whistle, step-dance and vocals are all in the energetic blend.
