One of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in recent times” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

Fascinating stuff” – Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music

Swaggering… glossy results” – The Guardian

A band name on everyone’s lips” – fRoots

Best Emerging Artist 2019 - Wales Folk Awards

 

The remarkable rise of double BBC Radio 2 folk award nominees The Trials of Cato on the UK folk-scene has been the subject of massive critical attention. Dubbed "the Sex Pistols of folk,” (J Davis) they pay clear homage to the tradition whilst twisting old bones into something febrile and modern, with stomping tunes and captivating stories. 

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 to performing tirelessly up and down the country, leading to BBC Radio 2s 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, "one of the most impressive debut albums of the year," (Songlines ★★★★) winning acclaim and receiving repeated national airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.
