Northern 3 piece 'Cassia' are heading to Strings this September.

“One of the most exciting bands to come out of area in years. Their music does things to me I can't explain." - Rob Adcock, BBC Introducing

Combining a rich musicality with continent-spanning influences, Cassia have made their mark with their own brand of calypso-flavoured afro-rock, resulting in a deft balance of the quintessentially British, and the unequivocally exotic. Macclesfield might not be the first place you think of when you hear the sun-soaked grooves of the three-piece, but that’s exactly where the trio hail from.

Recent highlights include festival appearances at The Great Escape, all three dates of this year's Dot to Dot, Truck, Y-Not and a tour of Europe stopping in Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland. They received a week long Radio *1 playlisting in early July, heavily backed by Rob Adcock of *BBC Introducing Staffordshire. Relentless touring to ever growing audiences across the UK is now becoming the norm for the Macclesfield tropi-poppers.
