Folk pioneers The Trials of Cato are heading out on tour starting in February 2020.

The band had a remarkable 2019 which saw them transform from buskers into BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners. Last year they toured their award-winning debut album Hide and Hair in the UK, North America and Europe.

On their upcoming tour, the band will play venues across the UK and debut new material from their upcoming second studio album.

The Trials of Cato formed in Beirut, Lebanon, but within a year of returning to the UK had gained the attention of the likes of Cerys Matthews (BBC 6 Music) and Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2).

In early 2019 they won Best Emerging Artist at the inaugural Wales Folk Awards and within six months they were double BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominees.

Their debut Hide and Hair was voted Best Album by BBC Radio 2 listeners at the 2019 Folk Awards, gains frequent national airplay and has cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK folk scene.
