Hebble are an eclectic world folk band with an unusual set of instruments that play lively, international traditional music in multiple languages. Hebble are Greek Bouzouki, Bodhran, and Cello + 3 vocals. They play English, Czech, Irish, Scottish, and Appalacian folk music. They also have a handful of original songs inspired by Yorkshire myth and landscape. Upbeat, virtuosic, and alternative with twists of jazz, rock and plenty of three-part harmonies. 

"Hebble have a unique and refreshing instrument line-up and all play with great skill, energy and passion. Impressive instrumental and vocal arrangements, and brilliant audience participation for all to enjoy." - STEVE NOON, Eagle Music

"Amazing. Oh my gosh, that was so good. Amazing, absolutely amazing, I love that! Absolutely incredible." - GAYLE LOFTHOUSE, BBC Radio Leeds
