About the Event

Originally from North Wales and Yorkshire, The Trials of Cato formed whilst living in Beirut,

and spent a year boiling down the roots of their sound into a hybrid of traditional inPluences

that intrigued Lebanese audiences in the country’s biggest venues. Returning home from

Beirut in the winter of 2016, they have since torn a shape very much their own into the canvas

of the UK folk scene.

Back in the UK, they set to performing tirelessly up and down the country, leading to

BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe hailing them as “one of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in

recent times.” Musical development in the run up to their debut album proper was swift and

sure, with Hide and Hair winning acclaim and receiving repeated national airplay on BBC

Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.

Praised for the diversity of their material and influences, The Trials of Cato live show

“invariably stuns audiences wherever they play.” (FATEA) Whether plying their trade busking,

performing in front of thousands at festivals across Europe, or frequently selling out their own

shows, The Trials of Cato have the wind behind them.
