*** EUROPEAN FOLK MUSIC AWARD 2019 NOMINEE ***
Trio Dhoore Are a young band of monstrously musical brothers from Flanders.
Championed by fRoots magazine, their first appearance in the UK at Sidmouth Folk festival in summer 2016 was a rip-roaring success, swiftly followed by universally-applauded shows at Homegrown Festival/EfEx. They are a stand out act!
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!
Koen (electro-acoustic hurdy-gurdy), Hartwin (diatonic accordion) and Ward Dhoore (acoustic guitar/mandolin) have honed their pure acoustic sound and refreshing arrangements with live work at prestigious events throughout mainland Europe over the past few years, as well as two acclaimed album releases.
Their lost recent album, Momentum, expresses that critical moment, the tipping point when sufficient energy is set free to enable change; the moment to seize a new opportunity. Trio Dhoore are ready to seize opportunities with all six hands!
Ward Dhoore: Guitar & Live electronics
Hartwin Dhoore: diatonic accordion
Koen Dhoore: Electro-acoustic hurdy-gurdy
