Tonderfest, Denmark and UK Tour

Hello music fans!  Please enjoy our temporary and updatable site while we get the new one up and running. 

We have just come back from an historic trip to St. John’s Newfoundland.  Sheesham and Lotus performed as a duo to much appreciation and standing ovation on the festival main-stage.  We also played with some great musicians from there and away, including the gang from the Dardenelles, Joel Savoy, and Sammy and Nadine from the Foghorn Stringband.

After playing the fabulous Tonderfest in Denmark, we will commence our most excellent UK tour. 

The line-up at Tonderfest this year is astounding!  We will rub shoulders with some amazing musicians there, some with whom we are already friends and some we have yet to meet!

Check out the line-up here!
