New Album

Rule of Three


Hailing from Vermont and Québec, Triton offer music rooted in the traditional dance repertoire of Northwestern Europe. The three are masters of the piano accordion, the quieter, bellows-blown bagpipes, and fiddle and nyckelharpa, together creating a beguiling and orchestral blend which utterly subverts the common stereotypes of their Old World instruments. Their repertoire includes bourrées from central France, triple-time hornpipes from the Scottish Borders, the Swedish slängpolska, the Breton hanter dro, and compelling originals reflecting these influences. Unified by their zeal and musical craftsmanship, their performances are also punctuated with engaging commentary on the music and instruments.

Un trio avec instruments multiples: violon, nyckelharpa, cistre nordique, accordéon piano, cornemuses écossaises, et whistles. Originaires du Vermont et du Québec, Triton propose un mélange séduisant de musique enracinée dans le repertoire de la danse traditionelle du nord-ouest de l’Europe. Outre des chansons en français, leur repertoire comprend des bourrées du centre de la France, des hornpipes 3 temps des frontières ècossaises, la slängpolska suèdoise, le hanter dro breton et des compositions reflétant ces influences.
