Based in Toronto, indie-folk duo Basset bring a deep love of the natural world to their gorgeously meditative performances, exploring themes of life in change, their travels around Northern Ontario, the Canadian and American prairies and the many characters who have crossed their paths.

Acoustic songwriters Sam Clark and Yasmine Shelton will take you through the city streets in the hours before the world has woken, or to a corrugated steel home north of the treeline. 

With comparisons to The Milk Carton Kids, Hozier, and Bon Iver, their inventiveness shines on fiddle and intricate harmonies, with Shelton and Clark's voices wrapping around each other like twin flames in a warm fire.

Having caught the attention of the Artsreach team at a conference in Canada, we're delighted to share Basset with our audiences in Dorset this autumn.
