NORTH ATLANTIC TRIO
Formed in 2009 around a fireplace somewhere south of Loch Lomond, Scotland - North Atlantic Trio joins Alaskan virtuoso harpist Cheyenne Brown with Scotland’s finest Dobro player Dave Currie, and Irish master percussionist Dave Boyd. Their genre defying music reflects their Scots, Irish and American traditions combined with Bluegrass, Gospel and Middle Eastern influences, and their own esoteric compositions. Gently growing their career, they have been warmly received at venues throughout the UK and at festivals across Europe, and now bring their music to Canada with a festival and concert tour
Their debut album “Some Part of Something” was released in Summer 2013 to great critical response.
“intelligently combines Scottish, old-time Appalachian and bluegrass music
and emerges gently triumphant at the other end.”
“a particular tasty transatlantic crossover” –Songlines Magazine
“Take a North American harp maestro, pitch her against a Scottish Bluegrass dobro aficionado and mix in an Irish percussive magician wielding the bodhrán
and the result is a surprisingly relaxing collection of traditional music”
“If ever there was a flawless coming together of cross-genre, mixed influence, multicultural music then the sublimely melodic and intensely gorgeous album ‘Some Part Of Something’ from North Atlantic Trio is a perfect example.”
“An excellent trans-Atlantic fusion of ‘newgrass’’
