About the event
Wielding the distinct voices of fiddle, concertina and double bass, the Grace Smith Trio brings together three like-minded musicians to create one dynamic and expressive musical dialogue.
Acclaimed fiddle and viola player Grace Smith is joined by Sam Partridge (concertina, electric guitar) and Bevan Morris (double bass) in this innovative ensemble, which offers a fresh take on folk.
Drawing deeply from tradition, whilst also expanding their repertoire with new melodies of their own, the Grace Smith Trio explores the boundaries of what folk can be. Bellows, bow and bass come together to mesmerising effect, with music that will stay with you long after you finish listening.
Their new album, Overleaf, is out now - supported by Help Musicians UK.
The Grace Smith Trio will also be holding a workshop for folk musicians in the afternoon. Please go to the workshop event page to find out more and get a discount for booking your concert and workshop seats together.
