Welcome

Sheesham and Lotus’ commitment to the preservation of music and tradition of the past is indelible. At the core of the show is a repertoire based on their love of the American fiddle tune, joyously played  with banjo and before long, a startling array of traditional and non-trad instruments make appearances.

Tunes played on jaw-harps, gourd banjos and homemade instruments like the Contrabass HarmoniPhonium add depth and absurdity to their amazing sound, as they sing into their patented Sepia-phonic Mono-phone, an acoustical filter into which they project their voices in stupefying harmonies, while playing ragtime and blues in pleasing mono-phonic delivery.

As a banjo and fiddle duet, and with their critically acclaimed trio, (Sheesham and Lotus & ‘Son) Sheesham and Lotus have established themselves as an act that has it all, combining astounding musicianship and fearless grooves with a show that is dynamic and entertaining.
