Famously referred to as "Mississippi Sheiks meet Doctor Seuss as curated by HG Wells" Sheesham & Lotus & 'Son have created a sonic & visual presentation of old time high stepping music which is completely unique. Fiddle, Banjo & Sousaphone make up the core of this outfit, complimented by Contrabass-Harmoniphonium, Harmonicas, Jaw Harps, Bones & BuckDance, with great sibling harmonies.

The show has it's roots in the Vaudeville & Juke Joints of the American South, where Mississippi Riverfolk meet the Appalachian Highlanders; blues meet fiddle tunes with a rollicking & full flamed conviviality one might consider outrageous!
