Music at Marrowbone Books: Sheesham, Lotus and 'Son

Sheesham, Lotus and ‘Son brought their banjo, fiddle, sousaphone and more to a corner of the Liberties for a recent session of old-time sounds, raucous tale-telling and a bit of clogging.

In this month’s podcast, Martin Cook talks to the Canadian trio about life on the road, the instruments they have made, and why they used to dress in sepia.
