Three Cane Whale

SADLY POSTPONED until further notice. We will contact ticket holders direct.

Tickets: £15/ £33 with delicious Café Sladers dinner from 6.30pm.

Highly acclaimed multi-instrumental acoustic chamber-folk trio, featuring members of Spiro, Get The Blessing and Scottish Dance Theatre, whose spare, intricate compositions combine ancient folk with modern classical ideas.

Look forward to an intimate evening of evocative music and unusual instrumental combinations. This spring Three Cane Whale are touring with tunes from their recently released new mini-album, ‘303’, as well as revisiting material inspired by some of their most resonant personal landscapes (including those of Dorset).

“A very talented trio: spellbinding” (BBC Radio 3)  

“Music as a primal whisper. It is difficult not to picture a captivated audience in a long-forgotten inn or travellers sharing stories around a campfire” (Dancing About Architecture)

As intricate as a team of watchmakers, as spare as a mountain stream, uplifting and elegiac in equal measure, their music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy, in which “the aroma of muddy leaves and old nettles is almost tangible” (The Observer).

The musicians:

Paul Bradley (Scottish Dance Theatre) – acoustic guitar, miniature harp

Pete Judge (Get the Blessing) – trumpet, cornet, rotary-valve tenor horn, dulcitone, harmonium, chimes, glockenspiels, lyre-harp

Alex Vann (Spiro) – mandolin, bouzouki, bowed psaltery, tenor banjo, zither, hammered dulcimer

Expect a stage strewn with upwards of 15 instruments (some familiar, such as trumpet, mandolin, & acoustic guitar; some beguilingly unusual, including the eerie bowed psaltery & a late-Victorian Scottish acoustic keyboard called the Dulcitone), allowing for some striking multiple instrumental combinations and an overall soundworld unlike any other.
