Willow has already made waves in the music scene, opening for renowned artists such as Mick Flannery, Moya Brennan, and Declan O'Rourke. Their 2019 and 2022 sold-out headline shows in Germany and Canada showcased the duo's exceptional talent and global appeal.

The track opens with a gentle slide guitar intro which is shortly joined by Karens haunting, heartfelt vocals, eventually intertwining seamlessly with Simon's harmonies.

Lay Down Your Troubles features an incredible ensemble of musicians, including skilled drummer Mark McGirr, the multitalented Orri McBrearty on bass guitar and organ, and the late, great Ted Ponsonby, whose distinctive dobro playing leaves an indelible mark on their music.

Tragically, Ted Ponsonby passed away suddenly in September 2023, never having the opportunity to hear the finished song, although he had also contributed to Without Willow's first EP released in 2017.

The duo's eagerly anticipated debut album, Left Behind, is scheduled for release on February 9th, accompanied by a launch gig at the esteemed Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny on the same day.
