Three lands, three cultures, three musicians.
TRÎLES, are the thrills, the trills and the three cultural islands where Ingried, Pia and Andrew originate (« trois îles » in French means three islands).
The fiery fusion of Danish, Scottish and Quebec traditions, old and new.
The contagious energy of folk dance and sweet caress of ballads.
The common history of three lands that shared so many waves of immigration.
The common path of three wandering musicians
…that were brought together by a fortunate fate.
Ingried Boussaroque (CAN) voice, recorders, nay, kantele, mandolin, percussion
Pia Nygaard (DK) voice, violin, bass violin
Andrew Mill (SCO) voice, guitar, effects, percussion
