This event has been and gone.

Three Cane Whale is a multi-instrumental acoustic chamber-folk trio based in Bristol, UK.

As intricate as a team of watchmakers, as spare as a mountain stream, uplifting and elegiac in equal measure, their music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy, in which the aroma of muddy leaves and old nettles is almost tangible (The Observer).

Three Cane Whale are:
Alex Vann mandolin, bowed psaltery, zither, bouzouki, tenor banjo, hammered dulcimer
Pete Judge trumpet, cornet, tenor horn, harmonium, dulcitone, lyre, chimes, glockenspiels
Paul Bradley acoustic guitar, miniature harp
