Cup O’Joe is a close family trio, playing together from their early teens, who have already made waves in the local and international acoustic music scene. The former Radio 2 Young Folk Award Finalists have toured extensively through Ireland, England and Central Europe.
The trio – Reuben, Tabitha and Benjamin Agnew – have been strongly influenced by a wide range of music but are rooted primarily in bluegrass and folk. They play their own original music which has progressive acoustic tones, blending bluegrass, folk and jazz.
They have appeared on many media platforms as well as several BBC documentaries and musical exhibitions. They are set to release their new album in the summer of 2019, which is filled with nine new original songs and one traditional, whilst embodying a fresh original sound. They will be joined at Crawfords by the hugely talented Boston based Mandolin player David Benedict, a winner of the 2018 IBMA Momentum award.
