Crowe safe on home turf

 By Tom Harrison, The ProvinceJune 30, 2009

Allison Crowe, who a month ago ran afoul of British customs officials and was denied entry to the U.K., has bounced back.

Crowe and band -- Billie Woods (guitar), Dave Baird (bass) and Laurent Boucher (percussion) -- are back in Canada following a triumphant tour of continental Europe.

Playing to full houses and multiple encores in Aachen, Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Prague and Vienna was especially gratifying.

Her encounter with new anti-terrorist/illegal immigration rules has fuelled a reform movement in the U.K. and resulted in public and media support from BBC Radio, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian/Observer, the Scotsman, the Northern Times and the Press & Journal, among others.

Crowe's next album will be her seventh release since the 2003 launch of her label, Rubenesque Records Ltd, and will be the first to showcase her quartet.
