Moving on Music’s Middle-Aisle presents TRÚ

The trύ was a mythological trio of poet-musicians in Ancient Ulster. They were revered throughout Ireland with some believing that their stories and song came to them from the future. Others maintained that the trύ were possessed by spirits during their performances. As such, they were considered gatekeepers to the Otherworld.

It’s from this legend that Northern Irish trio TRÚ draw their inspiration. Donal Kearney, Zach Trouton and Michael Mormecha are all unique and talented artists in their own right, but their collective chemistry has been bewitching audiences with powerful storytelling and songcraft.

From Gaelic Waulking songs and Scots lullabies to vengeful Japanese spirits and other mysterious characters, their debut album ‘No Fixed Abode’ draws from centuries of folklore in Ireland, Great Britain and beyond. These are stories told with a contemporary voice. There is nothing traditional about TRÚ except the songs themselves.

Expect an enchanting evening of music, story, song and ethereal vocal harmonies.
