Shovels & Rope

Cancelled.

Please bear with us during this unprecedented period. We will be in touch in due course about your tickets. Thank you for your patience and co-operation. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

American folk duo Shovels & Rope are composed of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. Hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, they combine threads from their individual solo careers with traditional folk, rock and roll and country rock.

Having released a fistful of albums since 2008, Trent and Hearst have built their reputation on skill, sweat, and, yes, blood. Now, with the tough and elegant new record By Blood, as well as their High Water Festival in their hometown, Shovels & Rope: The Movie, and the picture book C’Mon Utah!, Shovels & Rope are primed for their biggest year yet.

Accomplished musicians in their own right prior to teaming up for the Shovels & Rope album in 2008, Trent and Hearst have made a career together by seizing opportunities and never resting on their laurels or being complacent in doing something just because.

Carving out a niche in the Americana world with strong, rootsy efforts like 2012’s O’ Be Joyful, 2014’s Swimmin’ Time, and 2016’s inward-looking Little Seeds, as well as their powerful live show, far-reaching tours, and myriad TV and festival appearances, Shovels & Rope have earned the right to follow their own muse.
