ABOUT
Spellbinding multi-instrumental trio Three Cane Whale combine the influences of folk, minimalism, classical and film music to produce something “impressively original” (The Guardian) and uniquely moving. As intricate as a team of watchmakers yet as spare as a mountain stream, the music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy. The band’s eponymous debut album was recorded live in an eleven-hour shift in an eighteenth-century Bristol church, chosen by Cerys Matthews as one of her ‘Top Five Modern Folk Albums’ (Sunday Telegraph), and played on BBC Radio 4, BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, RTE Ireland, and Resonance FM. Their newly-released second album, "Holts and Hovers", consists of 19 tracks and 3 short interludes recorded in 20 different locations in Dorset, Wales, London, Somerset and Bristol, including churches and chapels, kitchens and hilltops, a greenwood barn and an allotment shed, the top of a Welsh waterfall and the underside of a Bristol flyover. ‘Remarkable. Four stars' (The Guardian)/ ‘A glorious adventure into new folk' (Cerys Matthews) / 'Quietly, utterly enchanting' (Songlines) / 'Glorious' (The Wire) / 'Exquisite' (fRoots)
