The Foxglove Trio seek out lesser-known traditional and contemporary folk songs and, with care and creativity, transform them into moments of breathtaking beauty.

Join them at Wakefield Cathedral (where band member Patrick was a chorister for many years) as they tour their second album, Distant Havens.

The album showcases the band's signature sound which is based on Patrick Dean's bold melodeon playing, Cathy Mason's intricate cello lines and Ffion Mair's clear, soaring vocals. A review of their debut album, These Gathered Branches, commented that the interest never wanes when listening to The Foxglove Trio (R2 magazine). The second album is also packed full of musical interest with the additon of tight vocal harmonies in both English and Welsh, guitar, whistle, percussion and even a second cello.

The Foxglove Trio's intriguing repertoire and imaginative arrangements, which can be heard on Distant Havens, are presented with an infectious energy and an effortless charm. Their passionate live performances will captivate you and take you on a journey from subtly political contemporary songs to jaunty Yorkshire tales and soulful Welsh laments.
