ABM are thrilled to introduce a young band of monstrously musical brothers from Flanders, Trio Dhoore: Koen (electro-acoustic hurdy-gurdy), Hartwin (diatonic accordion) and Ward Dhoore (acoustic guitar/mandolin.)
Championed by fRoots magazine, their first appearance in the UK at Sidmouth Folk festival this summer was a rip-roaring success, swiftly followed by universally-applauded shows at Homegrown Festival/EfEx.
Their “rooted folk music” breathes life, freedom and energy into a repertoire of traditional Flemish tunes (and the occasional song) and their own self-penned material. They create an immersive soundscape where folky grooves, melancholy melodies and intuitive interplay combine to unique effect. Thrillingly modern in approach, engaging in style, modest and technically outstanding in execution. This is what blood-harmony sounds like in instrumental form!
