Comprising the singing talents of Alex Cumming, Kate Locksley, Rosie Calvert and Will Finn, the a capella foursome have been creating a storm across the UK festival circuit in the last couple of years with critically acclaimed performances at Shepley Spring Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Warwick Folk Festival and more.

The Teacups met in 2010 whilst studying on the BMus Folk & Traditional Music Degree at Newcastle University. Since then they have gone on to perform around the UK and Europe, performing at some of the top festivals and venues. The band released their first album ‘One for the Pot’ in 2013 which was received very well, and in July 2015 they released their highly acclaimed second album ‘Of Labour & Love’.
