About this Act

Sgt Gavin Henderson's Trio comprise three likeminded musicians who formed in early 2017 and have already made their mark with their group. Coming from projects of their own (Teyr, Crossharbour, Céilí Max), Tad Sargent (guitar, bouzouki, bodhran, vocals), James Gavin (fiddle, guitar) and Dominic Henderson (Uillean pipes, whistles and vocals) blend their intrigue with new sounds with the old styles of the music they grew up with.

Born in London, Tad, James and Dominic having grown up playing on the session circuit as accomplished musicians in their own right, and also having taught extensively in their fields, now turn their heads towards hitting stages at events around the country with a new, exciting, and vibrant sound. Their music has been described as "Ear Candy For The Gods" by Bill Barclay (Director Music at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and Guardian Columnist).

Between them, the lads have played at venues ranging from the Royal Albert Hall, The Union Chapel, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre right through to Glastonbury Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, and been on many tours of Europe and The USA.
