Sheesham & Lotus & ‘Son
Making a triumphant return to the festival will be the new kings of ol’ time music, and unofficial festival mascots Sheesham & Lotus & ‘Son. Using modern innovations of antiquity for the making of old-time sounds is the very core of Sheesham & Lotus & ‘Son. This trio far exceeds their core combo of fiddle, banjo and sousaphone. 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.
