Swedish Sisters 3 Piece Banjo-Punk “Baskery”

19:30 - 22:30 20th March 2024

Baskery are three sisters from Stockholm, known for their energetic live shows and unique sound created on a six-string banjo, upright bass, acoustic- and electric guitars and drums, with lots of harmonies on top. The trio quickly made a name for themselves in the Americana and Folk scene and broke some new musical grounds when they sealed a record deal with WBR bros (Los Angeles) in 2014. Since 2018 they are based in Europe. The band has made appearances on numerous internationally acclaimed festivals and earned prestigious support slots for renowned artists such as Robbie Williams, Brandie Carlisle, Gary Clark Jr, Lukas Nelson and Seth Lakeman.

The three sisters can't recall when or why they started playing, the music’s always just been there. In their late teens, the sisters joined forces with their dad, who for decades, was a one-man band playing old blues and country tunes for a living. They named the band Slaptones and released two albums on EMI Sweden.
