The Canny Band are Michael Biggins (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2021), Sam Mabbett and Callum Convoy. The band are a rare fusion of PIANO, DIATONIC BUTTON ACCORDION and BODHRAN, the band have stormed the Glasgow traditional music scene and gained numerous high-profile appearances including BBC ALBA and BBC Radio Scotland. They also recently won ‘UP AND COMING ARTIST OF THE YEAR’ at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards.
They already have several awards under their belt including a CELTIC CONNECTIONS DANNY KYLE AWARD and HANDS UP FOR TRAD’S BATTLE OF THE FOLK BANDS.
Fellow stalwarts of Glasgow’s fertile session scene, the already-seasoned trio cook up an expert, effervescent mix of trad-based material with borrowings from classical, jazz and beyond, focussing more recently on self-penned material.
“Great players with standout arrangements – really fresh and exciting” KATHRYN TICKELL, BBC RADIO 3
