We asked The Canny Band a few questions.
Tell Us About Yourself
A collaboration born from a love of traditional music and fuelled by student poverty, The Canny Band are an eclectic trad trio based in Glasgow. Sam Mabbett (button accordion), Michael Biggins (piano) and Callum Convoy (bodhran) draw influence from a wide range of music including traditional, classical and jazz. In their short time as a trio, the band have already toured the UK and beyond and have several awards under their belts including a ‘Trip to Birmingham’ festival Molloy Award, a Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award and Hands up for Trad’s ‘Battle of the Folk Bands.
What are your plans for the future?
We’ve been working hard over the last few months writing material for our debut album. We have been meaning to record an album for the last 2 years so its exciting that its happening soon!
Thanks to Creative Scotland for their support in making this happen.
