Cup O'Joe, rising stars of the international bluegrass scene and BBC Young Folk Award nominees. This Northern Ireland-based trio is made up of siblings Benjamin, Reuben and Tabitha Agnew. They perform an original and energetic mix of bluegrass & gypsy jazz.
The siblings were raised on a healthy diet of music festivals and concerts from a young age and this influence is clear in their eclectic and enthusiastic performances.
With Reuben on guitar and mandolin, Benjamin on upright bass, and Tabitha on banjo and fiddle, their music is a fusion of hard driving Bluegrass with a mix of Jazz, Old Time, and Swing.
The trio has played at festivals and events all over Europe and are the first non US group to have been asked to play on the Youth Stage at IBMA in Raleigh North Carolina.
