Power-folk pioneers, The Trials of Cato, are hitting the road this spring following a remarkable 2019, which saw the band transform from buskers into BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners. Fresh from a frantic year touring their award-winning debut album Hide and Hair in the UK, North America and Europe, The Trials of Cato are descending on venues across the UK to debut new material from their hotly anticipated second album, due out later this year.
The band formed in Beirut, Lebanon but, within a year of returning to the UK, had gained the attention of the likes of Cerys Matthews (BBC 6 Music) and Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2). In early 2019, they won Best Emerging Artist at the inaugural Wales Folk Awards and within six months, they were double BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominees. Their debut Hide and Hair was voted Best Album by BBC Radio 2 listeners at the 2019 Folk Awards, gains frequent national airplay and has cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK folk scene.
