BBC Young Folk Award finalists, Cup O' Joe, are playing in Manorbier on Monday July 8.

Rising stars of the international bluegrass scene, this Northern Ireland-based trio is made up of siblings Benjamin, Reuben and Tabitha Agnew.

They perform an original and energetic mix of bluegrass and gypsy jazz.

The siblings were raised on a healthy diet of music festivals and concerts from a young age and this influence is clear in their eclectic and enthusiastic performances.

With Reuben on guitar and mandolin, Benjamin on upright bass, and Tabitha on banjo and fiddle, their music is a fusion of hard driving bluegrass with a mix of jazz, old time, and swing.

The trio has played at festivals and events all over Europe and are the first non-US group to have been asked to play on the Youth Stage at IBMA in Raleigh North Carolina.

Tabitha was nominated for the IBMA Momentum Instrumentalist of the Year award 2018. She also performed last year here in the county with her other band Midnight Skyracer which was sold out and highly successful.

Their mix of original and re-imagined traditional songs are the ingredients for an energetic and enthusiastic performance.

On this tour, Cup O' Joe will be joined by David Benedict, mandolinist in the bluegrass band Mile Twelve. David is described by jazz guitar sensation Julian Lage as 'one of the most inspiring lights on the creative acoustic music scene today'.

Pembrokeshire Eclectic Music Society is organising the event at Manorbier YHA Community Hall, Skrinkle Haven, SA70 7TT and it promises to be a wonderful way to spend a summer’s evening.

The doors open at 7pm for the 8pm show. There will be a bar and also tea and coffee available.

Tickets are £12 and available on the door, or pre-book by calling 01646 672457.
