Three Cane Whale + Firelight Trio

Part of Spring-Summer 2023 The Artists in Your Midst

This event has passed.

A double bill of two wonderfully inventive trios who carve out their own distinctively evocative, instantly lovable soundscapes.

Firelight Trio – a new group featuring Moishe’s Bagel accordionist Phil Alexander, renowned Scottish fiddle player Gavin Marwick, and Ruth Morris on the beautiful Swedish Nyckelharpa – take to the stage first playing a rich tapestry of European inspired music: lively Swedish polskas, Scottish reels, lilting French waltzes, toe-tapping klezmer, and dazzling original tunes. The band will be performing material from their acclaimed debut album Midnight Followed.

‘Top-calibre trio with grace, energy and playfulness’ – Folk Radio UK

Bristol’s peripatetic acoustic-multi-instrumental-chamber-folk trio Three Cane Whale return to their favourite venue laden with saddlebags full of of unexpected instrumental combinations (including mandolin, trumpet, acoustic guitar, mandocello, harmonium, zither, bowed psaltery and tenor horn) and tunes inspired by some of their most cherished landscapes. Expect material from all four of their existing albums, plus brand new tunes from their latest release, launched tonight.

‘Musical miniatures imbued with the West Country landscape. Exquisite, within and without. Four stars’ (Songlines)
