The Lost Trades

Three people carrying daffodils.

The Lost Trades are a Folk/Americana trio, based in the West Country. With a sound that is reminiscent of the California folk scene of the late 60s/early 70s, their three-part harmonies have been described as “flawless”, “spine tingling” and “magical”.

After a global pandemic cut short their first tour after just a single sold-out gig, the band retreated to their song-writing rooms to work on their well-received debut album, “The Bird, The Book & The Barrel”.  The follow up, “Petrichor” was released in March 2023, entering the Official UK Folk Albums Chart at #31.

A live performance involves easy interchanging of instruments, with each of the trio playing guitar, bass and percussion at different points. There’s always a fun intimacy to the show, with the three engaging in comfortable repartee with each other and the audience like a group of old friends.
