Swedish trio Baskery have announced their return to the UK to perform a series of gigs, including a date at Manchester’s Gullivers on 23rd October.

The three sisters (Greta, Sunniva and Stella) recently signed to Warner Bros Records and are working on new material for the upcoming album.  The band has drawn comparisons with everything from The Black Keys through to Fleetwood Mac, performing a distinctive blend of punk, folk and Americana.  It’s definitely unique, which is hardly surprising since their instrumentation involves a double bass, six string banjo and accoustic guitar – they themselves describe their sound as ‘banjopunk'(!), ‘new folk’ and ‘nordicana’.


The full listing:

20th October   –   London, The Islington

21st October   –   Kingkerswell, Kingkerswell Parish Church

23rd October   –   Manchester, Gullivers

24th October   –   Chester, Telford’s Warehouse

25th October   –   Nottingham, The Running Horse

28th October   –  Birmingham, Kitchen Garden Cafe

29th October   –   Leicester, The Musician
