A double-bill of artists who consistently reinvent and redefine folk traditions, in very different ways.


Boss Morris is an all-female Morris dancing collective based in Stroud. Founded with the aim of bringing a fresh and energetic perspective to traditional English Morris dancing, the group performs a vibrant and playful style of dancing, characterised by intricate footwork, bright costumes & jingling bells. Boss Morris is dedicated to promoting the cultural heritage of Morris dancing and making it accessible to all.

Three Cane Whale, meanwhile, is a multi-instrumental acoustic trio, who use wilfully eccentric combinations of instruments (from mandolin to mandocello, Eb trumpet to flugelhorn, nylon string guitar to bowed psaltery, zither to chimes) to create music that reeks of the British landscape, and resonates with folkish inflections without ever sounding like anything but itself. Tonight sees the much-anticipated release of their sixth album (their first since 2019) Hibernacula, inspired by some of their favourite places of refuge and (for the first time) recorded in their favourite venue: St George’s Bristol.
