Australia’s The Mae Trio are set to bring their unique contemporary twist on folk music to the UK with dates across the country including London, Maidstone, Suffolk, Tobermory, Iona, Morvern and Stornoway and Beauly. The tour coincides the release of their new album Take Care Take Cover which was reviewed on Folk Radio UK. The album includes a breathtaking unaccompanied three-part harmony of Karine Polwart’s Waterlily (listen below) that Mike, in his review, described as “truly sublime, and underscores the ever growing potential these girls have to capture a truly international stage.”
