The Dovetail Trio have been exploring folk narratives with musical skill and a passion for their heritage since forming in 2014. Their debut album Wing of Evening was released in 2015, followed by Bold Champions in 2019. The Dovetail Trio have toured folk clubs across the UK and Canada and played at leading festivals around the country including Cambridge Folk Festival and Sidmouth Folk Week, as well as performing live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.

‘The musicians were very sensitive and were able to engage with the children providing age related songs and musical activities. […] I was so enthused to see pupils willingly getting up at the front to dance with the musicians having a great time!’ – Hilltop School
‘Our learner absolutely loved it. They joined in and really enjoyed every song. They loved the interaction.’ – Enable Day Centre
