Folk Blues with Avocet

Avocet are a Glasgow based trio comprising of Sam Grassie (Guitar, Violin), IonaZajac (Vocals, Clarsach) and Herbie Loening (Double Bass, Guitar).

Taking theirname from Bert Jansch's eponymous 1979 album, their music explores the boundaries and world blues. Following their win at the DK Celtic Connections Festival they signed to Mink Records in 2017, travelling to the Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam to record their debut EP ‘Borrowed Seed’. They have been busy since, with festival performances and gigs across the country including support for Ralph McTell. With backing from the Bert Jansch Foundation they have released a new single, ‘Cheating Monday’, from their forthcoming album.
