This is Katus’s final gig of their “Spring of 2022” tour and its happening right here in Penrith. The performance will be conducted from a horse drawn Gypsy stage with a custom PA system curtosy of Juan Latour.

Katus has toured with Seth Lakeman, Supported The Levellers, played with Donovan and Nigel Kennedy, and toured with Czech Indie star Lenka Dusilova.

The evening will also include a short documentary about Yankuba’s Grandfather (One of the first people commissioned by the King of Gambia to bring Kora music to the UK in the 70s). Join us for relaxed drinks and what’s set to be a very interesting night indeed.
