Three Cane Whale Concert - Exeter

Three Cane Whale (Alex Vann, Pete Judge and Paul Bradley) are a multi-instrumental acoustic trio based in Bristol.

Their eponymous debut album was chosen by Cerys Matthews as one of her Top Five Modern Folk Albums. The band’s third album, Palimpsest was chosen by The Telegraph as one of the ‘Best Folk Music Albums Of 2016'; and by fRoots as one of its 5-star Playlist Albums; and by The Guardian for its Folk World Music Playlist.

The band has recently collaborated with thirteen filmmakers and visual artists, the fruits of which were premiered at Bristol’s St George’s concert hall as part of the 2017 Filmic Festival. In winter 2019, Three Cane Whale released their mini-album '303', inspired by and recorded in a series of linked locations in South Somerset.

As intricate as a team of watchmakers, as spare as a mountain stream, the 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

Book via Eventbrite, in person at Exeter Library or by telephone 01392407027.

Exquisite, elegant, atmospheric and charmingly quirky… a shifting mosaic of musical textures.
