Community Event

Sheesham Lotus &’Son

All the way from

Wolfe Island


Using modern

innovations of

antiquity for the

making of old-time

sounds is the very

core of Sheesham,

Lotus and ‘Son. This

trio far exceeds their

core combo of fiddle, banjo and sousaphone.

Sheesham, Lotus and ‘Son make ruthless groove music for the modern ear

with commitment and vigour. Jaw-harps and harmonicas ranging from bass

to treble amplified by beautiful horns, driving rhythms and soaring sibling

harmonies have made them highly prized by festivals and audiences

throughout Europe and the Americas.

Sound and vision explode from their stage as they bring the canon of old-

time American folk and pre-war songs with an aesthetic that is truly unusual.
