Three Cane Whale: Live Acoustic Trio perform on the Ballast Seed Floating Garden.

From churches to abandoned railway stations, multi-instrumental acoustic trio Three Cane Whale are no strangers to playing in unusual locations.  Playing a wonderful variety of instruments (20 at the last count!) join them for an intimate evening inspired by folk, minimalism, classical and film and enjoy music that has been described as "fascinating, remarkable and impressively original" (The Guardian), in which "the aroma of muddy leaves and old nettles is almost tangible" (The Observer).

Meet at Arnolfini Box Office.

A Seeds of Change: Floating Ballast Seed Garden brochure is available from Arnolfini.

Located on Bristol's historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city's trade and maritime past.
