The Trouble Notes are a progressive world folk trio based in Europe. Known for their explosive energy and worldly melodies, the band was formed in 2013 by violinist Bennet Cerven and has since become renown in the international world folk scene. The band’s core hails from three different continents: American violinist Bennet Cerven, German guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt and Australian drummer Julian Lardis. Their shows are packed full of surprises, known to feature international guest performers, adding to the energetic worldly sounds at the heart of their repertoire. In 2023, they released their 2nd studio album Liberty Awaits, which was described by Earmilk Magazine as “a transcendent exploration and fusion of various folk styles, showcasing the rich tapestry of our diverse world.” They have played on many of Europe’s large festival stages and with major international acts like Jethro Tull, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and America. This year The Trouble Notes began a campaign, More Violins, Less Violence, which has raised money for charities helping children effected by violence from the war in Ukraine.

The Trouble Notes had a brilliant festival season this year wowing audiences around UK and Europe. Some highlights of their summer were their shows on the Croissant Neuf Stage at Glastonbury, Wickham and Castlefest.

BBC Radio’s Faye Hatcher said the band is “like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Their musical influences take you on a journey around the world. You can’t help clap very loudly, tap your feet or spontaneously jig along to their music! An absolute must-see!!”
“The Trouble Notes have once again proved that they are a force to be reckoned with in the world music scene.” – Plastic Magazine
“The Trouble Notes’ music is an eclectic fusion of genre across the entirety of the musical spectrum, creating a sound that is truly unique to its own.” – Rob Underwood, BBC Radio Lincolnshire
