Winner of Best Album BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
Please note this event has been postponed.
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 influences 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 too 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.”
The band’s rapid ascent shows no signs of abating, having been nominated for the Horizon Award and Best Album in the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and subsequently awarded Winner of Best Album Award.
