Alan Surtees and Izzy MacLachlan have worked together since 2007 when Izzy joined the Shrewsbury Folk Festival team and started the successful Tuneworks teaching project. Shrewsbury Folk Festival needs no introduction, consistently leading other UK folk festivals in innovative ideas and programming.


Over the years they have collaborated on several aspects of the festival, two successful albums (Darwin and Cecil Sharp projects) and many concerts in Shrewsbury, mostly at The Hive in Belmont street.


As Shropshire Roots, they are committed to showcasing roots music with high production values and sound quality.They look forward to bringing you new flavours and old favourites, in a selection of Shropshire's finest venues.
