3 Cane Whale are without doubt one of my favourite bands in the world so I am thrilled that I am going to be sharing a stage with them next month.
We are putting on this one off event in the Lupton Hall at Bedales School to celebrate the life and works of Edward Thomas during his annual symposium.
Edward Thomas is one of our country’s literary heroes, whose work deals with themes that still have huge resonance today such as the encroachment of industry and large scale mechanised agriculture into the natural world and the search for traditional values and national heritage during uncertain times.
Many contemporary poets and musicians cite Thomas as an influence and the members of Pedal Folk and Three Cane Whale have been brought together from Bath, Bristol and London in their admiration of his work.
Their music draws inspiration not only directly from his words but also the themes of an English culture that he searched for and reflected upon through his love of poetry, of folk song and the joy that he took in traveling the land. Guaranteed to be a brilliant evening of music that will delight and engage fans of Thomas’ work as well as those who haven’t experienced his words.
