What was “The Roaring Forties” is now “Forty Degrees South”.
For various reasons we’re changing our name – but we’re not changing anything else. Keep an eye out for us at festivals over the coming season…
PS. We’ve got a new domain name too – 40degrees-south.com, but the old one will keep on working too.
The Roaring Forties are touring the North East of the USA during June 2017. The details of our activities are on our gigs page.
The video below is from a special performance organised for Danny in early February held in the Daylesford Town Hall – John is leading “Bring Out The Banners” supported by many of the other musicians who contributed to the event.
We will miss him – he has left a vast body of work and huge space in the folk music world.
