      A good year for The Firrenes

      2017 was a great year for the band. We successfully launched our first single, and enjoyed success with our Edinburgh and Berlin shows in October. Particular highlights were performing with MiNT at Zosch in Berlin, and welcoming Michael Eavis, founder of the Glastonbury Festival, to our Edinburgh gig. The Firrenes are now looking forward to completing our first album in May 2018, and to performing more widely within the UK. See the panels above for up-to-date gig information, which will be updated regularly.
