This Belgian trio of brothers bring a cocktail of new instrumental folk music from Flanders with uplifting grooves and swinging melodies.
In only five years and with three full albums, Trio Dhoore have launched themselves a top Flemish folk export. They blend traditional music from Flanders with their own style to create an energetic sound that will make you sit on the edge of your seat. 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. Championed by well-known and respected fRoots magazine, who described their “technical excellence and rare musicality”, their first appearance in the UK at Sidmouth Folk festival last year was a rip-roaring success. The band members are Ward Dhoore (acoustic guitar, mandolin), Hartwin Dhoore (diatonic accordion) and Koen Dhoore (electro-acoustic hurdy-gurdy). Thrillingly modern in approach, engaging in style, modest and technically outstanding in execution - this is what blood-harmony sounds like in instrumental form!
