Using modern innovations of antiquity for the making of old-time sounds is the very core of Sheesham, Lotus and ‘Son. This trio far exceeds their core combo of fiddle, banjo and sousaphone.
Sheesham, Lotus and ‘Son make ruthless groove music for the modern ear with commitment and vigour. Jaw-harps and harmonicas ranging from bass to treble amplified by beautiful horns, driving rhythms and soaring sibling harmonies have made them highly prized by festivals and audiences throughout Europe and the Americas.
Sound and vision explode from their stage as they bring the canon of old-time American folk and pre-war songs with an aesthetic that is truly unusual.
“The auditorium was packed, and there was so much applause at the end of the first set, it was like the crowd wanted an encore at the intermission – amazing!”
