The Trouble Notes

Thursday 15th August 2024

The Trouble Notes will be playing as ‘Good Trouble’ on Thursday (a collaboration with Good Habits).

The Trouble Notes are a progressive world folk trio. 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.

They have toured extensively in Europe and North America. They have performed on Television in the USA, Europe, Japan and Brazil. They have played on many of Europe’s large festival stages and with major international acts like Jethro Tull, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and America.


Their second studio album, Liberty Awaits was described as “a transcendent exploration and fusion of various folk styles, showcasing the rich tapestry of our diverse world.” – Earmilk Magazine 

“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!!” – BBC Radio’s Faye Hatcher
