BBC 2 Folk Award Finalists Cup O’Joe to perform at the Heritage Centre
Tuesday 14th January 2020
Cup O’Joe is a family trio who have been playing together from their early teens. Former BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Finalists, they blend the intricate tones of bluegrass, folk and jazz tones to create their own progressive acoustic sound with strong harmonies that blend together like only sibling harmonies can.
Their mix of original and re-imagined traditional songs are the ingredients for an energetic and enthusiastic performance which appeals to a wide audience and they are a growing presence on the acoustic music scene.
“All three play with an extraordinary level of intuition” – Folk Radio UK
