Ear Trumpet Folk Club: Regular intimate, sit-down gigs with some of the greatest musicians from around the globe.

A return booking for this acclaimed multi-instrumental acoustic trio and their magnificent film project, which involves the band performing live to 12 specially-commissioned short films made by 13 filmmakers and visual artists in response to 3CW tunes of their choice – including cutting-edge animations, lo-fi shadow-puppetry, alfresco contemporary dance, and slowly shifting landscapes. Last year’s sell-out performance at The Wardrobe Theatre was one of only two in 2017. This year, the band are taking the project out on the road, from Dartmoor to Edinburgh, and this is its only Bristol performance.

Paul Bradley – acoustic guitar, miniature harp
Pete Judge – trumpet, rotary-valve tenor horn, dulcitone, harmonium, glockenspiels, chimes, lyre
Alex Vann – mandolin, bouzouki, tenor banjo, bowed psaltery, zither, hammered dulcimer

“Impressively original.”
The Guardian

“Their delicate acoustic constructions combine ancient folk and contemporary classical ideas to weave an entirely original new musical tradition.”
Bristol 24/7
