The Trials of Cato WEB 1B.jpg

If you haven’t yet been treated to a live performance by The Trials of Cato we highly recommend you rectify that as soon as possible!

Quite simply one of the most exciting discoveries on the UK Folk circuit today, this incredibly talented trio have been hugely inspired by world travels, particularly a year in Lebanon where they honed their sound from a hybrid of traditional influences.

Since returning to the UK they have been performing tirelessly, earning a reputation for shows that “stun audiences wherever they play”, and their performance on our Acorn Stage 2019 was no exception.

A real discovery on the folk circuit in recent times
