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
30th October – Bristol, The Canteen
1st November – Essex, Little Rabbit Barn
Baskery perform at Gullivers on 23rd October 2014.
