Whalebone folk music

International award-winning trio brings Celtic blend to Watchfield


An award winning instrumental trio who blend Celtic folk music with strands of rock, Americana and Eastern European tradition are performing at Watchfield Village Hall on Friday 22nd June.

Critically acclaimed acoustic trio Whalebone are coming to Watchfield as part of their 2018 tour promoting their latest award-winning album Mirabilia.


The band are known for using more unusual instruments alongside traditional guitars and fiddle, with five-string violin, eight-string baritone guitar, mandolin and bouzouki all featuring in their music. “We’re definitely not purists where music is concerned. We love to blend different musical flavours together” said guitarist Steve Downs, who will be joined onstage by fiddle player Sarah Ibberson and guitarist Char Watson.
