Baskery, made up of three sisters, Greta, Stella and Sunniva Bondesson, is a Swedish alternative rock band with strong American country and blues influences.
The band are currently embarking on a month-long UK tour and will stop for a concert at the Greystones in Sheffield on November 4th.
Baskery first came to the UK in 2008 when they supported folk singer Seth Lakeman and has already performed twice at the Greystones.
Sunniva, who plays acoustic and electric guitar, cello and vocals, said: “We are really delighted with Sheffield, we love it. It’s such a beautiful place, it reminds me a bit of LA because of the way it is nestled in the mountains. Sheffield is always busy.
“We’re playing a few new songs from our EP that we released last year and two new songs that we released this year. Our new material has been well received. We also play our classics that people want to hear.
“We’ve been on the road all the time. Because our dad was a musician when we were kids, we came on his tours and got addicted to being on the road and playing.
The group moved to the United States in 2014, opened for Robbie Williams on his Let Me Entertain You tour the following year, and toured the United States and Europe until the pandemic.
Sunniva added, “We had a little break during the pandemic to focus on songwriting, when we started touring again we knew that was what we loved to do. When you’re on the road, you don’t have to think about anything.
“We have a rock sound but there’s a lot of harmonies and influences from American folk, people who love country and blues come to our shows. We’re pretty versatile and we do a lot of a cappella songs. It’s the complete musical experience, a lot of energy.
Baskery will be performing at Glastonbury next year and more festivals are in the works but cannot be announced yet. The sisters plan to make their next album in the UK.
Doors open at 8 p.m. on November 4, and tickers can be purchased here.
