The Trials Of Cato tour continues

The Trials Of Cato

Formed in Beirut, The Trials of Cato returned to the UK in 2016 and set to 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 debut album, Hide And Hair, gained attention in national publications, received repeated national airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, many community radio shows and won Best Album at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Following a year of wall-to-wall touring across the UK, Europe, and North America in 2019, the band’s march was halted by the live silence of the global pandemic. Now, they emerge from their chrysalis transformed. As ever, ‘The Trials Continue’ – but this time the multi-talented instrumentalist and singer Polly Bolton joins guitarist Tomos Williams, and mandolin and tenor banjo man man Robin Jones in their ranks. The Trials of Cato’s hotly anticipated second album is scheduled for release later this year. Entitled Gog Magog, the album is named both after the mythical giant of Arthurian legend and the Cambridgeshire hilltop, where the new album was birthed over lockdown. The Trials of Cato’s rapid ascent shows no signs of abating. For a full list of the tour in March and April see below. The tour continues in May and throughout the year.
