Scheduled Brindley Events News Pictures

One of the most talked about bands on the UK folk music, lauded by the likes of Mark Radcliffe and Cerys Matthews, The Trials Of Cato has been booked to appear at the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on Thursday 7 March, courtesy of Halton Borough Council,

Originally from North Wales and Yorkshire, the band spent a year in Beirut, boiling down the roots of their sound into a hybrid of traditional influences that intrigued Lebanese audiences in the country’s biggest venues.

They moved back to the UK and have since been 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.”

Their musical development in the run up to their debut album proper has been swift and sure, winning much praise for Hide and Hair 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 audience wherever they play.” Whether plying their trade busking, performing in front of thousands at festivals across Europe, or frequently selling out their own club shows, The Trials of Cato have the wind behind them.

Tickets for this fascinating show are £16 from and the Brindley box office on 0151 907 8360.
