Steamy folk music guaranteed by 3 brothers! Ward, Hartwin, and Koen have known each other for a very long time! The three brothers have been playing together for more than 20 years. Formerly in the forest and in the attic, today on stage. Little has changed in the concept; playfully create their own imaginary world in which no rules apply and it is blissful.
Through the years the brothers managed to create their own sound with their innovative instrumental folk; a musical identity that is hard to link with traditional music from any region, but which still feels familiar to many. The many foreign concerts all over Europe and Canada do not lie. But Trio Dhoore’s music is also appreciated in Flanders. The song “Endless Dancing” from their latest album ‘Momentum’ can be heard regularly on the Flemish National radio.
In 2017 the brothers performed “MainStage” during Dranouter Festival, one of Flanders most important festivals and they made their “entrance” in the Flemish art centers. Diatonic accordion, hurdy-gurdy, guitar and electronic effects complement each other seamlessly in a musical adventure where you sit on the edge of your chair.
