After a mammoth solo world tour promoting the release of the critically acclaimed album, Verging On The Perpendicular, BBC Folk Award nominee Dan Walsh's annual UK tour offers an exciting change with the launch of the all-new Dan Walsh Trio.

This exciting new outfit sees him team up with award winning fiddler Ciaran Algar and long-time collaborator Nic Zuppardi on mandolin. Although a few favourites from Dan's previous highly praised albums will be in the set, the gigs will mostly be shaped around brand new and innovative material. At the heart of the trio's sound is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is sure to be a truly memorable live show featuring three of the most in demand musicians on the folk scene today.

The Dan Walsh Trio will be playing at SpArC Theatre in Bishop's Castle on Thursday, May 24 at 7.30pm. To book, call the box offic eon 01588 630321 or visit
