Primrose Wood Acoustic: The Trials of Cato plus support

Tonight's Primrose Wood event with The Trials of Cato is being transferred to PAC due to the heavy rain forecast (Met Office update at 12.00pm) from late afternoon. This is to ensure artist, staff and customer safety and comfort before, during and after the event.

The event at PAC will not be socially distanced BUT will be at 50% capacity and the auditorium will have medical grade air purifiers in use throughout the event. Face coverings are strongly encouraged but not a requirement. All venue staff will be wearing them throughout the performance and have undergone lateral flow tests in advance.

Doors will open at 6.00pm and the show will start at 7.00pm, as originally advertised.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Hailed by BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe as “one of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in recent times.” Their debut album, Hide and Hair, gained attention in national publications, receiving repeated national airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, and won Best Album at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Following a year of wall-to-wall touring across the UK, Europe, and North America in 2019, the band’s march was halted by the live silence of the global pandemic. Now, they emerge from their chrysalis transformed. As ever, ‘The Trials Continue’ – but this time the multi- talented instrumentalist and singer Polly Bolton joins their ranks. The Trials of Cato’s hotly anticipated second album is scheduled for release later this year. Entitled Gog Magog, the album is named both after the mythical giant of Arthurian legend and the Cambridgeshire hilltop, where the new album was birthed over lockdown.

Supported by Jessica Lawson and Phil Simpson 

After years of making music independently, Jessica Lawson and Phil Simpson have finally joined forces. Influenced by Americana, folk and country, together they deliver beautiful harmonies accompanied by a myriad of instruments – autoharp, guitar, mandolin and melodeon to name but a few. The pair have been performing across the UK and Europe, with audiences returning to see them again and again. With a diary full of gigs and new songs up their sleeves, their ever-developing live show just gets better each time. Expect some well-known classics, as well as a selection of traditional and self-penned songs which will have the whole audience singing along!
